We are thrilled to announce that Planeta has acquired Spanish and Catalan rights in pre-empt to the first two books in Rovio Entertainment’s Storm Sisters YA pirate series written by Mintie Das: The Sinking World (Rovio Books 2014) and The Frozen Seas (Rovio Books 2015). Among other titles published by Planeta are Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments books.
“Storm Sisters: The Sinking World provides exciting adventures, positive values, five charismatic female characters, friendship, love, intrigue, and promise of a second interesting entry!”
– Marta Vilagut, Planeta, Executive Editor of Destino Infantil & Juvenil
Rights to the Storm Sisters series, produced in collaboration with Rovio Books, have also been sold in France to Éditions Robert Laffont, in Finland to Tammi, in Hungary to JCS Media and in Indonesia to Gramedia. Earlier this year the series was included among 10 other works in Books At Berlinale, an event that introduces film producers to new literary works with strong potential for the big screen.
“A refreshing combination of strong girls with big hearts, action, humor, romance and political intrigue across the Seven Seas, Storm Sisters had us hooked from the first page. Long live the Pirettes!”
– Glenn Tavennec, Éditions Robert Laffont, Publisher of the Collection “R” imprint
Set in the late 1700s but told in a lively, contemporary voice, the Storm Sisters series follows five girls of different ages from various corners of the world who sail the high seas on their own, facing dangerous enemies and protecting themselves with a secret pirate identity called “The Pirettes.”
