Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group, will be publishing a middle-grade novel called The Creature Department by Robert Paul Weston.
The author has teamed up with an Academy Award-winning special effects group called Framestore. Together, they have worked on “an array of visual assets” that will accompany this book on different platforms. This includes a special Creature Department app.
The Facebook page has more: “The Creature Department follows the adventures of Elliot and Leslie as they help the incredible creatures of DENKI-3000 make a series of wondrous new inventions in an effort to save not only their factory, but all of creaturedom!”
Fans will get a chance to speak with “a creature” at Book Expo America and San Diego Comic Con. The press release reports that the novel will be published in fall 2013.
