While John Grisham‘s adult novels have been available as eBooks since March 2010, his Theodore Boone young adult novels have been released as eBooks for the first time today.
Grisham began adapting the legal thriller genre for younger audiences last year with his debut children’s novel, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. The author has since published Theodore Boone: The Abduction, the second book in the series. According to a press release from the book’s publisher, Penguin, “there are currently more than 1.7 million copies of the Theodore Boone books in print in the U.S.”
Don Weisberg, President of Penguin’s Young Readers Group, stated: “We are thrilled to make John Grisham’s wonderful stories available in eBook format, giving young readers greater accessibility in today’s multi-platform environment.”
