SEUSS ENTERPRISES EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP WITH VERLAG ANTJE KUNSTMANN

30 Sep - 2020

Iconic titles “The Lorax” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” are available beginning in September 2020

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, a leading global children’s entertainment company, announced new and renewed international licensing deals with German Publisher Verlag Antje Kunstmann for The Lorax and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Dr. Seuss Enterprises granted Verlag Antje Kunstmann exclusive publishing rights to these iconic titles in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Verlag Antje Kunstmann first published The Lorax eight years ago, but this will mark the first time they’re publishing How the Grinch Stole Christmas! 

Verlag Antje Kunstmann will begin to release these Dr. Seuss titles in September 2020, which coincides perfectly with the 50th anniversary of The Lorax. Both How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and The Lorax will be translated by award-winning German graphic artist and children’s book author Nadia Budde for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Verlag Antje Kunstmann has been an excellent publisher for our titles and we’re looking forward to expanding this partnership as Dr. Seuss’s iconic library continues to perform outstandingly well in these European markets,” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.

Illustrated books Editor Heike Bräutigam at Verlag Antje Kunstmann said, “We’re excited to expand our work with Dr. Seuss Enterprises as Dr. Seuss’s children’s books are timeless classics that deserve to be discovered, read and enjoyed by a broad young readership in our markets.”

The expansion of the partnership with Verlag Antje Kunstmann marks only the latest growth for the Dr. Seuss portfolio globally. Recently, Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced deals with European licensees Verbarium Publishing, Botart Publishing House, and Thalia, and Australian licensees Amscan, Lake Press, MJM Australia, and Zak Australia.
