Children's book publisher Egmont UK has just announced the release of its first ebooks. The first 10 titles will be available on 8 March in most major ebookstores, and will be priced at 80% of the print edition. Among the first titles to be published will be Blue Peter book prize winner You're a Bad Man Mr Gum (Andy Stanton), Costa prize-winner Just Henry (Michelle Magorian), and west-end theatre favourite War Horse (Michael Morpurgo), plus children's classic The Velveteen Rabbit (Margery Williams), Running on the Cracks (Julia Donaldson) and Tumtum and Nutmeg (Emily Bearn).
Unfortunately, they only have plans to release 21 titles. Oh, well. It's a start, at least.
