The World’s Best Stories Come To Yoto with Penguin Random House Partnership
Always looking to expand our library of top-notch kids’ audio, we’ve teamed up with Penguin Random House to bring you Yoto cards featuring some of the world’s best children’s stories. Penguin Random House and its Puffin imprint are titans in the world of publishing, and partnering with them means there’ll be a whole new world of excellent stories available on Yoto.
We’ve already kicked off the collaboration with Roald Dahl and Paul McCartney. Five of Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories — Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The Enormous Crocodile, Revolting Rhymes and Boy — are available now, and we’ll be releasing more very soon. Sir Paul’s first children’s story, Hey Grandude!, read by the legend himself, is also out now.
Here’s Richard Lennon, Publisher at Penguin Random House Audio, on the news: “Our audio editions use narration, sound effects and cutting-edge recording techniques to capture the imaginations of children for whom listening is the most natural way to engage with a story. We are excited about the huge potential Yoto has to help even more young readers find their new favourite characters.”
Yoto’s own Ben Drury, company CEO and Co-Founder, is just as thrilled: “We’re excited to be partnering with the world’s leading publisher to bring some of their best-loved stories to Yoto in audio form. Starting with Roald Dahl and the brand new children’s story from Sir Paul McCartney is a wonderful way to kick off the partnership.”
You can read the full press release here, and stay tuned for further first-class stories coming soon to Yoto.
