    Barrington Stoke

    Barrington Stoke has over 21 years’ award-winning experience of publishing dyslexia friendly, super-readable books accessible to young people with dyslexia or reading reluctance
    We strongly believe that every child can become a reader – if we remove the obstacles that can get in their way.
    From our shapely font that promotes character recognition to our tinted paper that is easier on the eye, everything about our books is designed to break down the barriers that prevent young people developing a love of reading – from dyslexia to visual stress, language issues to simple reluctance.
    But you don’t need to be a reluctant or struggling reader to enjoy our books. We have an incredible range of stories from the very best award-winning authors and illustrators, from picture books, to first chapter books in colour, middle grade, teen and YA novels.
    In 2020 Barrington Stoke were the first Scottish publisher to win the CILIP Carnegie Medal for Lark by Anthony McGowan.
