Business Profile:

Turner Butler are delighted to be able to bring to market arguably the best children's
books and characters package to appear in many years. The books are based on a group of
500 year old characters that help profile present-day concerns. There has never been a
better time for a product with such a strong message to be launched.

Aimed at a wide variety of age groups, this high-quality, humorous and bold three-book
series features an array of idiosyncratic characters who live in the picturesque setting of
the Peak District. The stories focus on the issues that face children today, such as
bullying, the environment, fair play and staying healthy through exercise and diet. The
characters, although from a bygone era do relate strongly to the modem-day world and
speak to an age range that spans small children to young adult and beyond.

As with all the most successful children's characters they will appeal to a much wider
audience than that at which it was originally aimed. Adult approval is all-important and
this series scores highly with its strong citizenship qualities and powerful social
messages. Indeed, the trilogy, although not fully launched, has received rave reviews and
a hugely positive response from readers and professionally interested parties (police,
teachers etc) alike.

In addition to the two books already written there will be a third to complete the trilogy,
the characters are ready for manufacture and the sale package includes full worldwide
publishing and broadcasting rights. It also covers worldwide distribution and licensing
rights over 13 categories (patent in place).

This opportunity should be very attractive to any company or individual involved in the
distribution or licensing of broadcast entertainment. Alternatively, it would offer an ideal
opportunity to a high net-worth individual looking for a platform from which to launch
into this exciting and lucrative sector.

Key Strengths:

This book series addresses ever-present issues so will always be relevant and can be fed
straight into market at any time. The stories are superbly written and evoke a fairy-tale
world that feeds the imagination while channelling key messages that all parents would
want to pass on to their children. Here lies the key element of social concern that
underlies the stories, a philosophy built on tolerance and altruism, positive attitudes and
respect for other people and the world around us.

The books and characters are ready to launch and our clients have already had interest
from a large merchandising concern.


Growth and Expansion:

The expansion prospects of this property are immense due to the variety of areas this
brand can cover, In short, this is a product that can be as great as your imagination can
conceive - the commercial categories are already in place.


Key Opportunities:

The books and characters are trademarked across a variety of classifications and
categories to include:

Class 9 - Photographic, Cinematographic, Motion Picture, Film. Recording to include
discs and DVDs, CD ROMs and Computer software.

These are only a few of the classes and categories granted, there are 13 in total covering
