Ninja Life Hacks and Insight Editions Announce New Global Publishing Program
Bestselling independent publishers Grow Grit Press and Insight Editions have partnered on a publishing program for the best-selling series Ninja Life Hacks that will extend the brand into board books, activity books and other products globally to help young readers develop resilience, confidence, and social-emotional skills.
Ninja Life Hacks was created by Mary Nhin in 2019. The signature series of paperback books each feature a character who has mastered an essential life skill such as Angry Ninja, Positive Ninja, Focus Ninja and Anxious Ninja. The series has grown to a catalogue of more than 60 paperback books, over 10,000 5-star reviews and sales of more than 1 million copies which to date has only been available exclusively online.
The partnership with Insight Editions expands the Ninja Life Hacks characters into new formats and market channels and was created by The Brand Liaison as agent for Ninja Life Hacks.
