HarperCollins Children’s Books and Walden Media have inked a strategic partnership to establish a new children’s book imprint called Walden Pond Press.
Under the multi-year agreement, Walden Pond Press will acquire and publish books for young readers; pair book properties with filmmakers and actors; and collaborate on the development and production of motion pictures based on select book titles.
The joint venture follows a longstanding promotional partnership between Walden Media and HaperCollins supporting literacy, featuring books such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, Bridge to Terabithia and Charlotte’s Web that have all been turned into big screen properties.
The first Walden Pond title will be The Will of Will Wolfkin by Steven Knight. The sweeping epic fantasy set under a glacier in Iceland, is scheduled to be published by Walden Pond Press in Fall 2009.
Walden Pond Press is Walden Media’s first dedicated publishing imprint.
