LONDON, September 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
George at Asda Launches Exclusive Range of Bush Tales T-shirts
Following the roaring success of composer and writer Matthew Jameson's book collection, Bush Tales, George at Asda has launched an exclusive collection of kids clothing based on the best-selling books, starting with range of Bush Tales t-shirts.
To mark Asda's growing relationship with and support for Bush Tales - a unique selection of animal-magic children's books with an accompanying musical CD - George at Asda is offering the young fans a chance to look the part with the exclusive range of t-shirts.
Bush Tales, described by Jameson as "a musical in a box", offers the ultimate musical storytelling experience. The unique and contemporary collection of stories is inspired by legends and folk lore of Africa. Each book introduces its young readers to African animal heroes, including Hustler the Meerkat, Bont the Baboon and Pula the short Giraffe, explaining how these animals, and many more, look the way they do today.
Matthew Jameson commented: "Bush Tales aims to give young readers the ultimate storytelling experience in a really fun, educational way. Children and families alike come to know and love the characters so offering children these fantastic t-shirts, exclusively available in George, seemed an obvious next step."
Lianne Buchanan, George at Asda's buyer commented: "There is a lot of buzz around the fantastic Bush Tales adventures. We know our shoppers are always looking for the next big thing to engage their kids and these t-shirts will make youngsters the king of the playground!"
The range of exclusive to Asda Bush Tale t-shirts includes six designs for boys to choose from (9 months - 6 years old) and two designs for girls. The t-shirts cost from £5 each and are available in 75 Asda stores across the UK. For more information please visit george.com. Shoppers can also use George's Click and Collect service - order the t-shirts online and either have them delivered home, or pick them up in your nearest store.
Notes to Editors
A herd of 30 leading West End stars and a pack of 'Best of British' orchestras are part of the soundtrack that brings the stories to life.
