If you are in New York this weekend, and plan on going Book Expo America (BEA), Papercutz will be there and are giving away free posters and talking about its latest licesenced titles.

• Free posters (with activity guides) promoting Papercutz’s upcoming line of Geronimo Stilton graphic novels. Geronimo, a journalist mouse, has appeared in chapter books selling more than 30 million copies, according to the authoritative website, and a series of animated cartoons is in production, but only now is the character appearing in graphic novels!

• NANCY DREW graphic-novel writers Stefan Petrucha and Sarah Kinney signing and handing out free books on Friday afternoon and Saturday. The website has given Petrucha and Kinney’s NANCY DREW work the iParenting Media Award as an outstanding product for children, and ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY calls Nancy one of the “20 All-Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture.”

• A postcard giveaway to help booksellers promote TALES FROM THE CRYPT’s DIARY OF A WIMPY KID satire, “Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid.” Booksellers already know about the WIMPY KID series’ massive popularity. Papercutz’s sharp-witted skewering will delight the people who love the books — as well as the people who can’t stand them! In attendance: TALES FROM THE CRYPT writer-editor Jim Salicrup.

• News and previews of upcoming projects, including the new line of Disney Fairies graphic novels! The popularity of PETER PAN’s Tinker Bell has spawned multi-million-selling Disney Fairies DVDs, chapter books, and other merchandise. Now, Papercutz launches a line of original graphic novels to delight kids and their parents.

Papercutz is a leading publisher of comic books and graphic novels for kids. In addition to the Disney Fairies books, BIONICLE, and NANCY DREW, Papercutz publishes series such as CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, and THE HARDY BOYS. Disney Fairies is © The Walt Disney Company. Geronimo Stilton is © Atlantyca.S.p.A.
