Some interesting publishing news.  Dreamworks Animation, known for blockbuster movies like Shrek and How to Train a Dragon, is moving into children’s publishing.

The idea behind this is that they are already in the storytelling business and this is a way to expand on that.
The report that I read in Publishers Weekly (see it here) explains that their focus will be on new material.  Dreamworks will continue to work with publishers who already have licenses for Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon and Madagascar, because they have no plans to publish everything themselves.
The first list produced by Dreamworks Press is expected to be out for the holiday season in 2014.
