About Us

We are passionate about creating beautiful, imaginative children's books (and a few for adults too) that combine the best quality and value for money. 

We have over 30 years of experience in children's publishing, we are a family business and proudly independent.


We can move quickly on new titles, react to trends and work with customers and consumers to create the books they want not the books we think they should have.

We have extensive experience in creating titles and designs for major retailers, publishers, toy and gift companies and distributors across many sectors whether it be just design or end to end solutions from design all the way through to manufacture and supply of the finished goods.

We have created beautiful books for rights and coedition partners from China to South Korea to the US.

We work closely with production partners to ensure our finished products, and the raw materials used within, are safe and ethically produced and all of our factories are regularly audited to ensure they comply with international ethical and quality standards. 

I hope you find some products of interest and please feel free to contact us if there is anything you would like to discuss further, we are here to help!

Most of all, during this pandemic, please stay safe and well and look after your loved ones.
