This article reports that children's book publishers will put out more children's series books in 2005 and will be doing more to promote and distribute the titles given their success, a BPR roundup of market leaders shows. The growth of children's series books has prompted the journal "New York Times," to rank the series books separately from the chapter, picture and paperback books. Penguin's Redwall series by Brian Jacques, which ranks No. 10 on the journal "New York Times," series list, is its next most popular series, and a new title is published each fall. A company spokesperson estimated the total number of copies of Redwall books in circulation tops 10 million copies worldwide.
