What we do

We produce books for babies, toddlers and children about the things we love – learning, stories and, most importantly, fun! We believe in a thing called quality – in making books that last longer. We integrate innovative design and editorial to create high-quality illustrated books. We make books we love and believe in.

How we do it

Small is beautiful! We are happy to be independent, as it enables us to be fast and flexible. We hope this will allow us to build on many years of friendship in the world of children’s books. Featuring at Frankfurt, Bologna and London Book Fairs, we hope to see you all soon.

Really Decent?

We source our print and manufacturing from accredited suppliers who have passed rigorous independent audits. We also endeavour to use the Egmont Grading System© which takes into account how paper has been harvested or recycled, and how the forests are managed.

Whenever possible, we like to visit the factories ourselves to make sure we are happy with the standards before we print our books.

Finally we ensure that all our books are tested and pass the international safety standards of EN71, ASTM and ISO.
