Children's Television Workshop signed a multiyear agreement with Random House, a division of Bertelsmann. The pact is expected to increase CTW's U.S. and international book publishing and online development. CTW said it will also pursue TV production projects with Random House. Random House Children's Media Group will launch its first efforts for CTW and ``Sesame Street'' in July with new story, color and activity books for publication in the U.S. and Canada.
