Dial Books For Young Readers

(Imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group)

Dial Books For Young Readers reach preschool age to teenage. Picture books must have strong plots, lots of action, unusual premises, or universal themes treated with freshness and originality. Humor works well in these books. A very well-thought-out and intelligently presented book has the best chance of being taken on.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: children's fiction and non-fiction, picture books, board books, interactive books, novels.
