Immedium is an idea factory. Working with talented artists around the world, we aim to create new faces and narratives for contemporary kids and adults to enjoy. The following are examples.

1. The Octonauts

Dog As the publisher of the original four books in The Octonauts series, created by the authors Meomi, Immedium introduced the crew to appreciative American audiences. Due to popular demand, we published sequels to made a four book series that won unfettered acclaim.

Recently we've been proud that The Octonauts have launced as an animated TV show, which is sailing across the globe into the hearts of viewers.

    2. A Story Before Bed

    Our children's books are now available online at www.astorybeforebed.com.

    Readers can make our stories their own, by customizing the experience and sharing their video by email with friends or family. As long as one has a webcam, a customer can record themselves reading the book, page by page. Like a television's picture in picture feature, they can see themselves in a little window next to the story's illustrations. Then if they like their performance, they can pay an affordable fee to "own" it, and then they can email their "storytime" to another person around the globe who can enjoy playing it.

    This is a great way for parents on the road to send greetings home. Similarly, grandparents and friends can email their love in living color. Plus as a service to our men and women in uniform, people in the United States armed forces can sign up for a special mailing list offering free recordings and discounts so they can send greetings to their children who may be far away.

    The service is accessible on mobile devices like the Apple iPhone.

    We have dozens of more stories with tremendous potential, and look forward to hearing your interest.
