About us

Join us in celebrating five years of publishing!

Starting out in February 2019, we were lucky enough to launch with the latest works of two masters of the picture book, Satoshi Kitamura and Jon Agee.

Five years have flown by, and the 30 titles now on our list are from talented debut authors and artists, classic artist Roger Duvoisin, and many friends old and new whose work we admire. Genres range from fiction to narrative non-fiction, to novels for new readers - with illustrated poetry to be added next.

We're proud that our books have between them won the Queen's Knickers Award, an English Association Award, and two Teach Early Years Awards; shortlistings for the Waterstones Prize, the Booktrust Storytime Prize and the North Somerset Teachers' Book Award; long listings for the Klaus Flugge Prize and the UKLA Award, plus nominations for the Kate Greenaway Medal. We are very grateful for all the time reviewers have put into writing insightfully about our books.

Most titles have free resources developed around them, and these are housed on the website, where you can learn about the authors and illustrators, and the visits and events - both real and virtual - that they offer.

Huge thanks to everyone who has made our first five years of publishing possible - they know who they are! - and to all our authors and artists.
