Sinking Ship & Mango Publishing Pact for Dino Dana Book


Sinking Ship Entertainment has inked a deal with Mango Publishing for Dino Dana: Dino Field Guide, which is set to be released later this year.

Dino Dana: Dino Field Guide is written by J.J. Johnson, Christin Simms and Colleen Russo Johnson and full of colorful illustrations and science facts. It will be available wherever books are sold beginning May 19, 2020.

The brand currently includes a television series and upcoming feature film, both produced in association with Amazon Prime and TVOKids. Dana is a feisty 10-year-old who eats, sleeps and breathes dinosaurs. Winner of multiple awards, the live-action/CG-blended series airs worldwide with broadcaster partners including ABC in Australia, CITV in the U.K. and Nat Geo in pan-Latin America and MENA.

“We have been thrilled to partner with Mango Publishing on this book,” said Kate Sanagan, head of sales and distribution. “Their innovative approach to everything from creative to marketing is refreshing and very much in line with what we aim to do at Sinking Ship. We can’t wait for dinosaur fans to get their hands on this field guide.”

“It’s not every day we get to work with such a delightful and successful team as Sinking Ship,” says Chris McKenney, president of Mango Publishing. “The Dino Dana project has already been a fun adventure and we are eager to see all the happy faces of little paleontologists-in-training when they get their very own field guide.”
