We are a small, independent, family-run company, founded in 1980, to create illustrated information books for young children, aged 3 to 11. The success of our books lies in their ability to captivate children’s imagination and hold their attention through the quality of the artwork and design, and the clarity of the text.
We are passionate about learning. Through our books we seek to nurture children’s innate curiosity about the world around them and explain how things work and how plants, animals and people interact with their environment in everyday life. Importantly, our books encourage children to discover the world from their own unique perspective.
Discovery has always been the theme behind our publishing and most of our series are named accordingly. Our most successful series – First Discovery, My First Discoveries and Torchlights – have sold over 40 million copies in 30 languages around the world.
We have benefitted from a long-term creative partnership with the acclaimed French children’s book publisher, Gallimard Jeunesse, and their outstanding team of illustrators. With publishing and marketing agreements all over the world, we operate from offices in the UK, France and Spain.
