About Us

We are an independent children’s publishing company that creates and publishes children’s books for sale in the UK and around the world. We are known for the things that we know best: foreign language learning and creative, hands-on non-fiction for kids.

At the heart of our business is the dynamic duo, Cath and Sam (see illustration above)! Along with a group of talented freelance writers, illustrators and designers, we love nothing more than cutting, sticking and colouring our way through the day. From making a table-top rainforest to discovering how bikes work, artistic ideas and fascinating facts fill our list. We also like sharing our passion for language learning through a range of activity books that focus on learning English, French and Spanish.
We are on a mission to inspire children to make things with their hands and discover the world around them. Whether on their own or together with their favourite adults (parent, grandparent, teacher, carer or friend!), kids will love our curious texts and beautiful illustrations.
