Penguin Random House LLC is an American publishing company, and the largest general-interest trade book publisher in the world due in part to its many divisions and imprints. The company was formed in 2013 through the merger of English company Pearson's subsidiary Penguin Books Ltd. and German company Bertelsmann's subsidiary Random House, Inc.; it is today wholly owned by Bertelsmann. Prior to the merger, Random House published two adaptations of the 1932 King Kong novelization in 1983 and 1994 (the latter through the imprint Julia MacRae Books) and numerous books based on the Godzilla franchise between 1996 and 1998. Penguin Random House has recently begun publishing new Godzilla books, including two picture books and an entry in the Who Was...? series.

As of July 10, 2024, Penguin Random House is due to acquire comic book publisher BOOM! Studios, which will be made into an imprint of its Random House Publishing Group division.[3]
