Annick Is Partnering with Open Road to Bring You Great E-Books!

We're pleased to announce that Annick Press has partnered with Open Road Media, a New York-based digital publisher and multimedia content company, to offer thirty-four of our titles as e-books. The titles include Robert Munsch’s children’s classic The Paper Bag Princess, the ten-book Mole Sisters series by Roslyn Schwartz, and original picture books such as Red Is Best by Kathy Stinson.

The e-books will be on sale this summer from, Apple iBookstore,, Google/IndieBound, Kobo Books, OverDrive, and the Sony Reader Store.

Our director and co-founder Rick Wilks had this to say:

“Annick has enjoyed over thirty-five years of publishing success. Now, as we prepare to position our program for the future, we are thrilled to partner with Open Road Media. Perhaps the foremost challenge facing creators of books for youth is finding the paths to connect with today’s readers. We’re confident that a relationship with Open Road will forge such a connection, to the betterment of all who appreciate access to both their favorite titles and to making new discoveries.”
And from Open Road, advisor Barbara Marcus said:
“Open Road is very excited about our new relationship with Annick Press. Annick publishes timeless titles that we have long admired. Now with Open Road, these books will also be available as ebooks, which we are excited to distribute and market to a new audience of digital readers.”
