Funko is Launching a Children’s Book Series


There’s no geek or nerd these days who isn’t aware of Funko. Their Pop figures, which are characterized by oversized heads and cute button eyes, have taken the world by storm. There’s no popular character these days who doesn’t have a Funko POP version. Now, Funko is venturing into yet another medium.

According to a recent announcement, Funko is teaming up with Sterling Publishing in order to launch a new children’s book series in June. The book series will take its cue from Funko’s own designs and characters from Wetmore Forest. For the uninitiated, Wetmore Forest was created by Funko in order to encourage discovery and exploration among its fans. Funko’s Pop! Monsters include Bugsy Wingnut, Butterhorn, Snuggletooth, Tumblebee and others.

Funko and Sterling Publishing will showcase the books at the London Book Fair and Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

“We’re excited to expand the storylines of our beloved Wetmore family through a book series available at the bookseller with the largest number of retail outlets in the United States,” says Johanna Gepford, senior vice president, global sales, Funko. “Children will be delighted to follow the adventures of characters created by the same creative geniuses that produce highly sought-after Funko products.”

Funko’s book series will be available online and in-store exclusively at Barnes & Noble along with accompanying Funko merchandise beginning June 15.
