About our books

In the United States and Canada many, but not all, of our board book, picture books and novelty books are published under a Nosy Crow imprint, which is under the umbrella of Candlewick Press.

In Australia and New Zealand, Nosy Crow partners with Allen and Unwin, who distribute all our books to book shops in both countries.

In 2017, Nosy Crow was named Children’s Publisher of the Year at the British Book Awards and Children’s Publisher of the Year at the Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) Independent Publishing Awards.

We have won the Independent Publishers Guild’s Children’s Publisher of the Year award on four occasions: in 2017, 2016, 2013, and 2012. In 2016, Nosy Crow was also named overall Independent Publisher of the Year.

Some of Nosy Crow’s books for babies; some of them are for young teenagers. Some are picture books; some are novels. We’re publishing people you may already know (like Axel Scheffler) and authors and illustrators whose work has never been read or seen before.

For every book we publish, we have a reader in our minds, and, as parents ourselves, we also have a sense of the parents and grandparents of that reader. We hope they enjoy reading and sharing our books as much as we enjoy publishing them.
