Original DK and Nickelodeon Press Release:

DK Partners with Nickelodeon to Release Two Adult Humour Titles



20th September, London -- DK, a division of Penguin Random House, is proud to announce a new publishing* partnership with Nickelodeon. This October, DK will publish two new humour books in the UK, US and Canada to help millennials navigate work and relationships: Hey Arnold!: Guide to Relationships by Rachel Bozek and Rugrats: Guide to Adulting by Stacey Grant.

These inspiring and humorous books take direct quotes and stills from the popular Nick ‘90s shows to offer advice on the themes of adulthood and relationships. These bold and colourful books evoke a playful nostalgia and are packed with throwbacks to the original animated series.

Simon Beecroft, Publishing Director for DK’s licensing imprint said: “DK is excited to be working with its friends at Nickelodeon again. We think these books are a smart, clever take on millennial nostalgia and will resonate with anyone dealing with life in their 20s or 30s who needs a little advice from a simpler time. We hope these books are just the start of a larger range of Nickelodeon titles from DK.”

Both Hey Arnold!: Guide to Relationships and Rugrats: Guide to Adulting publish on October 4 in the UK, and October 2 in the US and Canada.
