We are the largest publisher of children’s books in Scotland. We publish board and picture books for 0-7 year olds, including international stories in translation and nostalgic classics from illustrators such as Elsa Beskow, as well as the Kelpies, a much-loved range of Scottish children's books for 1-15 year olds.
All of our Kelpies books have a Scottish connection — be it the author, illustrator, characters, storyline or setting — which makes them very special indeed. But wherever in the world you are, you can always enjoy a Kelpie! Kelpies are Scottish books for children everywhere.
