Publisher Information

Usborne Books

(Imprint of EDC Publications)

Usborne Publishing is a multiple award-winning, independent children's publishing company. Based in the UK, Usborne books are available worldwide. In July 2004 Usborne launched its Fabulous New Fiction list with a host of exciting authors from established, prize-winning writers to talented newcomers. Across the range we are looking for innovative, exciting, original and above all child-centred stories that will capture children's imagination and engender a love of reading. We are looking for stories that are easily accessible to children, that speak directly to the child reader and are highly readable. Exciting and page-turning plots, memorable characters and interesting, fresh voices are all important criteria. We are interested in strong series ideas, lots of humour and adventure, and books that will appeal to both boys and girls.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: activity, gift, early years, farmyard tales, fiction, true stories, information books, languages, music, puzzles, sports, young learning/reading
