Sinking Ship Entertainment is thrilled to announce today its new Dino Dana: Dino Field Guide has hit #1 on the bestseller list ahead of its official publication date. Published by Mango Publishing, the book recently landed the number 1 spot in several children’s book categories. Written by J.J. Johnson, Christin Simms and Colleen Russo Johnson, the Dino Field Guide is available on and wherever books are sold. Based on this initial success of the publishing program, Sinking Ship and Mango Publishing are now set to partner on additional books and games, including an activity workbook, board book, card games, and Volume 2 of the Dino Field Guide.

“We’re so impressed with the Sinking Ship team’s commitment to making science fun for girls and boys with shows like Dino Dana”, said Chris McKenney, Publisher of Mango Publishing, adding “We’re very proud to be working with Sinking Ship to bring the Dino Field Guide publishing program to kids around the world.”

“We’re extremely proud of the first book’s success and the creative teams behind it,” adds Kate Sanagan, a Head of Sales and Distribution at Sinking Ship Entertainment. “It’s the perfect companion for any young Dino Dana viewer or dinosaur fan in general. It made perfect sense for us to continue to work with our friends at Mango, and we are excited to collaborate with them on more Dana products over the coming year.”
