On February 24th Masqueradesfox uploaded this Chinese book to the Scooby-Doo Discord. With what little I could make out with Optical Character Recognition software and a hiragana chart I attempted to translate it. If anyone who sees this thread is better at chinese than I, or even owns the book please share additional knowledge.
尹酉萱璽 "Yin You Xuan Xi" [It’s in the same font as the traditional Scooby-Doo logo, possibly just ‘Scooby-Doo’ in localized form]
深海探毽号 “Deep sea exploration number” [That’s most likely butchered, but given it's position next to what seems to be the logo, it may be a subtitle.]
几童画? [It refers to the quantity of 'children's drawings'. The last letter is beyond me.]
?国华纳公司授权出版 [90% sure this is the publication signature, presumably by Warner Bros.]
国内第一本少儿探案历险涅画杂志 “Nirvana Magazine: The 1st Adventure Book For Children In China” [could be a longer version of the 'children's drawings' one from before, but for sure this is the magazine company that put it out]
I couldn’t find an english equivalent either through reverse image search or just scanning through a list of Scooby-Doo books also released in 2008 (which I didn’t mention before, that’s the date on it). Hopefully through contributions to this thread we can find out more about this book, but that’s all I got for now.
