Children's Book Publishing
See your children's stories brought to life in high-quality paperback. See characters become real and landscapes jump out from the page with colourful, detailed illustrations that make your book stand out from the crowd!
In a nutshell
Give your children's book the best chance of success with custom illustrations, thick, glossy paper and global distribution so that it can be read by children across the world. We include custom illustrations as part of our children's book publishing packages, as we believe that vivid designs and eye-catching characters can really capture the imagination and add to the story. Alternatively, authors can provide their own children's book illustrations and we can format them to the text. However you envision your children's book, we'll do our best to see your story come to life!
