Meet Epic Originals.
Our exclusive Epic Originals series take kids to new worlds with characters who make them feel right at home. Packed with high-interest topics and relatable social themes, these fun, inclusive stories empower kids to learn and grow by inspiring creativity, curiosity and empathy. Created with some of the top talent and educational expertise in children’s publishing, Epic Originals meet kids wherever they are on their reading journey.
A world of exploration.
Epic Originals offer kids endless adventures: one minute they can be traveling the multiverse with the Bright Family, and the next they’re at summer camp, making friends with the quirky, “FUNusual” Creature Campers. They can join their favorite feline superhero in Cat Ninja as he defends Metro City from villains and then explore mysteries and myths in the Really Weird Mysteries series.
Stories that meet kids where they are.
These original books aren’t just fun—each one is created in collaboration with an expert educational consultant specializing in children’s media to maximize the entertainment and learning value of each story. Kids learn to navigate tough situations and develop traits like compassion, resilience and courage through social-emotional content and relatable situations. Whether it’s how Robin stands up to a bully in Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw or how an adorable beast conquers his own fears in Scaredy Monster, important lessons and life skills are built right into stories kids love to read again and again.
These stories show kids there are no limits to who they can be. They can go anywhere and accomplish anything.
