Sourcebooks, Sesame Workshop to publish books behind Apple TV+’s ‘Ghostwriter’

Sourcebooks and Sesame Workshop today announced a new series of companion books to Ghostwriter, an Apple TV+ original series that reimagines the classic show for a new generation. 

A mix of inclusively-adapted classics and original works that inspired each Ghostwriter adventure, the first two books in the series – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Jungle Book – are available now wherever books are sold, with original story Trinity coming at the end of December. More titles in the series will be announced as the Ghostwriter television show unfolds.

Available exclusively on Apple TV+, Ghostwriter is a family-friendly live-action mystery for kids ages 6 to 11. Each multi-episode arc is inspired by a different literary work, following the action as a ghost haunts a neighborhood bookstore and releases famous fictional characters into the real world, leaving a group of friends to help return them to their books – all while they look for clues to the ghost’s identity. 

Each Sourcebook work was adapted by a different prominent or rising-star middle-grade authors. Kwame Alexander, the Newbury Award and Coretta Scott King Honor-winning poet and author of books like The Crossover, serves as the series’ literary ambassador, helping spread the series’ message of exploration.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Jungle Book are available now wherever books and e-books are sold. Trinity will be available starting Dec. 31. For more information about the Ghostwriter book series, visit, and click here for an exclusive “Behind the Page” featurette from Apple TV+.
