Clarion Books

(Imprint of Houghton Mifflin Company)

Clarion Books publishes picture books, nonfiction, and fiction for infants through grade 12. Clarion is looking for quality and well-executed ideas. Clarion Books began publishing children's fiction and picture books in 1965 with a list of six titles. In 1979 it was bought by and became an imprint of Houghton Mifflin Company. Since then the list has expanded to nearly sixty titles a year and includes nonfiction as well as fiction and picture books. In 1987 Clarion received its first Newbery Honor Medal, for On My Honor by Marion Dane Bauer, and in 1988 it had its first Newbery Medal winner, Lincoln: A Photobiography by Russell Freedman. Since then Clarion books have received children's book honors and awards nearly every year. Clarion's award-winning titles include The Three Pigs (2002 Caldecott Medal), Tuesday (Caldecott Medal), and Sector 7 (Caldecott Honor), all written and illustrated by David Wiesner; A Single Shard (2002 Newbery Medal) by Linda Sue Park; The Midwife's Apprentice (Newbery Medal) and Catherine Called Birdy (Newbery Honor), both by Karen Cushman; Sir Walter Ralegh and The Quest for El Dorado (the inaugural Sibert Medal) by Marc Aronson; and My Rows and Piles of Coins (Coretta Scott King Honor for illustration) by Tololwa M. Mollel, illustrated by E. B. Lewis.
