Random House will close Tricycle Press, the children’s imprint of Ten Speed Press in the Crown division. The change will take effect at the end of January.
Publishers Weekly reported: “Random House Children’s Books is discontinuing the frontlist publishing program of Berkeley-based Tricycle Press, the 18-year-old children’s book imprint. As part of the change, v-p and publisher Nicole Geiger and her four-person editorial team will leave the company on the 31st as well.”
In 2002, a Massachusetts school used Tricycle’s King & King in its second grade curriculum. Two parents filed a lawsuit, claiming the book provided sexual education without parental notification.
