TMNT 2k3 books

What do we know if the kids tmnt books, where they original stories ? Approved by Laird ? Any interesting ones out there ?
These young adult books always intrigue me since they're official stories are often original stories but are overlooked by the fandom because they are books for kids.

I remember having a few of them, some did have all-new stories from what I remember. A few about fighting Hun and the Purple Dragons, some random Foot Soldier stuff. But of course they were kids books so they were simple plots to teach kids how to read english.

My step son had at least a couple. I think these were two of them:




I want to say that maybe they were loose adaptions of episodes from the series. I'll have to take a look in the house, I think we still have them. Pretty sure my twin boys that are younger than him inherited his children's library.

EDIT: I went looking through my boys shelf, and this is the only one I could find. It's a loose adaption of the episode Fallen Angel:

This remind me what they did in Italy for the TMNT Adventures comics. They publish the series in small books containing an issue or two of the comics and a good amount of pages with crosswords and stuff like that.

Really?
The only thing I found back then were those puzzle books...
I would have killed someone to have those comics back then.

In UK there were magazines that published the episodes, like they take screenshots or something from the show and they published them with captions, like some kind of comic books.

I'd love scans of these if any exists. I've found issue 1 on eBay for an example:
