Frontlist | HarperCollins India, Amar Chitra Katha to publish ACK Comics
In the first of its kind partnership, HarperCollins India and Amar Chitra Katha announced a new collaboration on Monday.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with HarperCollins India to bring the beautiful folktales of India from our iconic comic books into an exciting new format for younger readers. Since our comic books are typically read by children in the 8-14 age group, we believe that these early chapter books will help us take these engaging stories to a younger age group, and open up our treasure trove of stories to a new audience. HarperCollins Children’s books India and Amar Chitra Katha share the same commitment to growing the reading habit among Indian children and we are confident that this series will bring many hours of joy to little Indian readers,” said Preeti Vyas, President & CEO of Amar Chitra Katha Pvt. Ltd.
Tina Narang, Publisher, HarperCollins Children’s Books, remarked, “Amar Chitra Katha has such a strong history of publishing for children, generations have grown up reading ACK comics. So, we are delighted to present a first-time adaptation of these popular comics into a narrative format for young children. We are launching this new initiative with the Amar Chitra Katha Folktales Collection. We look forward to a long and fruitful association with ACK and to bringing out many more collections in the months and years ahead.”
