EK Books – Books with Heart on Issues that Matter

Five years ago, EK Books set out on a mission to publish children’s books on themes that other publishers fear to touch.

Our books are crafted by authors and illustrators whose backgrounds include teaching and psychology. These creators have a knack for unpacking complex issues, making them engaging and memorable for even our youngest readers.

Of course, while our books often focus on heavy issues, we aren’t afraid to tackle lighter subjects as well. And even the darkest themes contain a message of hope and optimism.

It’s no surprise that our gorgeous books with their great characters and glorious illustrations have seen EK go from strength to strength. We have been recognized by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, were recently nominated for Publisher of the Year at the Bologna Book Fair, and have received coverage in international media including The Guardian. Available in all English speaking countries and in translation across Europe and Asia, EK Books provides hope, heart and entertainment for children worldwide.
