eBooks and Apps
Perhaps you simply want to read a book on a tablet. Maybe you’re interested in exclusive content – direct from the author. Or you might be looking for a fully interactive experience. Whatever the case, we can help! We offer eBooks, enhanced eBooks and apps – something to suit every kind of digital user.
Our range of eBooks include titles for early readers such as Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree and Sienna Mercer’s My Sister the Vampire. We also publish many eBooks for older readers, from Michael Morpurgo’s Kensuke’s Kingdom to Jenny Nimmo’s Charlie Bone, and Young Adult titles such as Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein and Michael Grant’s BZRK.
If you want more, our exciting digital-only imprint, Egmont Extras, gives you access to exclusive content from the authors themselves. In our enhanced eBooks, you can discover never-seen-before author interviews and readings – in addition to the full, original texts.
Sarah Hughes, Fiction Publishing Director at Egmont Press, says, ‘Egmont Extras includes a range of prize winning, commercially successful titles from charismatic authors like Andy Stanton and William Nicholson. Every edition gives a fascinating insight into each author’s creative process.’

If you want to explore the context of a narrative, we have apps such as War Horse, which includes an interactive World War One timeline and videos by historians of this period. Or if you’d like a magical on-screen experience, check out Classic Pooh – bringing to life a collection of much-loved stories for a new generation.
Our apps are highly rated – by both readers and the narrators themselves. David Walliams, narrator of the Mr. Tickle app, says, ‘The Mr. Men series is practically a British institution with pride of place on children’s bookshelves up and down the country, so it’s been great fun to provide the new voice of Mr. Tickle for the app.’
Our aim with each app is to combine reading with an unforgettable immersive and interactive experience. We want our apps to make you ’appy!
