I’ve always loved the Sonic the Hedgehog children’s books from the 90s, from the junior novelizations to the look and find books to the guide books filled with inaccuracies. The fine folks at Penguin Random House are reviving the world of Sonic the Hedgehog children’s books with three new titles, due out March 6, 2018, as well as an adult coloring book from Archie Sonic legend Patrick Spaziante (the coloring book releases earlier than the others, on October 17, 2017). Check out the covers below as well as full descriptions and pre-order links. “Sonic and the Tales of Deception” sounds especially interesting, as it tells three short stories and will feature full color illustrations from Ian McGinty.
