Global Licensing Appointed Australia/NZ Licensing Agent for Book Hungry Bears

9 Story Distribution International Ltd, the worldwide licensor for the exciting new CGI preschool TV series “Book Hungry Bears’, has appointed Global Licensing NZ Ltd as Licensing Agent for Australia & NZ. Book Hungry Bears is a NZ, Canada and China co-production between Pūkeko Pictures, Breakthrough Entertainment and Hengxin Shambala Kids, and is distributed by 9Story. 52 x 11 min episodes (Series 1) are broadcast on ABC in Australia and TVNZ in NZ.


Show Synopsis

The Book Hungry Bears love sharing books. They are hungry to learn all they can from the picture books that flit and flutter about in the Bear’s beautiful papercraft world. Join Crystal, Boomer, Melody and Scout as they search amongst the paper trees for a new book to share. Then get “close and comfy” with them as they settle down to enjoy the book together, sharing the delight of the narrative and learning about each other and the incredible world around them.

Book Hungry Bears is a celebration of the love of children’s picture books. In this series, the books are read just like a child would read a story with their family, a shared experience that can be replicated at home. Each book’s illustrations appear just as they do in the book - they don’t magically animate, it is the reading of the book that brings the stories to life. Every adventure is a captivating experience centred around a book, a lesson and relating this back to everyday life. It is a way of enriching young children’s lives through great stories, and a great book.
