submission guidelines

Please do read this section carefully before you submit! If you don’t stick to the guidelines, given the volume of approaches we have, you’re reducing your chances of us looking at your work seriously. We are currently taking submissions for children's books for ages 1 to 8. Please be professional. Do not submit any book with inappropriate content or racially offensive.

 

Please don’t be too disappointed if we reject your work or don’t respond! We’re a small company and can only publish a few new books each year, so do try other publishers and agents. Publishing is a hugely subjective business. Please allow 6-8 weeks for response and DO NOT submit twice. 

artist/illustrator submissions:

We review picture book projects and sample illustrations as well as book designs with the use of vectors, clip art and illustrations. To submit a picture book, please review the picture book guidelines above. To submit samples, please send them in the form best suited to the art (postcard, 8 ½ x 11 inches, etc.). Keep in mind that one well-presented submission will be more attractive than several submissions or a submission in many parts. If you are a clip art designer, please send unpublished art only.
