'Ghost Hunters' book targets next gen of TAPS tots

This news hit last week while we were on break, but Publisher's Weekly announced that Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson of Syfy's Ghost Hunters will be launching a children's book series for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.  The deal, brokered by agent Jody Hotchkiss, is in conjunction with Jane Stine (of Parachute Properties, and wife of author R.L. Stine), and was hinted at in our October interview with the TAPS guys.

The first book of the series targeting middle grade children will hit Halloween 2010 and is tentatively title Ghost Hunt.  More details to come, but can a TAPS cartoon be far behind, and could the animated Jay and Grant ever live up to the high bar set by South Park (pictured here)?
