Stomping into bookstores this May!

Sinking Ship Entertainment is excited to announce it has inked a publishing deal for its popular preschool brand, Dino Dana. The brand currently includes a television series and upcoming feature film, both produced in association with Amazon Prime and TVOKids. Dana is a feisty 10 year-old who eats, sleeps and breathes dinosaurs. Winner of multiple awards, including 2019’s Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Performer in Children’s Program, the live action/CG blended series airs worldwide with broadcaster partners including ABC in Australia, CITV in the U.K., and Nat Geo in pan-Latin America and Middle East/North Africa. Scheduled to be released in late May, 2020, Dino Dana: Dino Field Guide is written by J.J. Johnson, Christin Simms, and Colleen Russo Johnson, and full of colorful illustrations and fascinating science facts.

“We have been thrilled to partner with Mango Publishing on this book” says Kate Sanagan, Head of Sales and Distribution. “Their innovative approach to everything from creative to marketing is refreshing and very much in line with what we aim to do at Sinking Ship. We can’t wait for dinosaur fans to get their hands on this field guide.”

“It’s not everyday we get to work with such a delightful and successful team as Sinking Ship,” says Chris McKenney, President of Mango Publishing. “The Dino Dana project has already been a fun adventure and we are eager to see all the happy faces of little paleontologists-in-training when they get their very own field guide.”

Dino Dana: Dino Field Guide will be available wherever books are sold beginning May 19, 2020. As previously announced, Dino Dana The Movie has its theatrical premiere March 21, 2020 in North America, with a longer museum window beginning in June 2020.
