The World of the Hunger Games

The World of the Hunger Games

In a little over two months, The Hunger Games — adapted from the bestselling young adult novel by Suzanne Collins — opens in theaters in the US. In advance of the film's release, Scholastic has announced plans to produce a number of books linked to the movie. We have previously written about two of these — The Hunger Games Tribute Guide and The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion — and now we have the artwork for the cover of another: The World of The Hunger Games (right). The image used is also the same from the puzzle poster contest from last month.

The World of The Hunger Games is a richly illustrated, full-color guide to all the districts of Panem, all the participants in the Hunger Games, and the life and home of Katniss Everdeen. It is available to pre-order; the official publication date is March 23rd, 2012, the same day the film opens. (Note: Amazon.com lists the publication date as February 7th, the same day as the other books published by Scholastic, but we believe this to be incorrect.)
