Children's Book Publishers: Piccadilly Press

One of the most approachable children's book publishers I've found in the UK is London based Piccadilly Press. With a list ranging from Picture Books to Teenage Fiction and Non-fiction, there is something for all young age groups.
  • Picture Books are for 2-5 years and should be character-led at around 500 to 1000 words
  • Children's Fiction ranges from 6 plus, then 8-12 years and is often contemporary and humorous.
  • Teenage Fiction is for 11-15 years and is often issue-led, with typical teenage problems.
  • An interesting addition is non-fiction for teens, which should be humorous and light-hearted.
Full submission details are on the Piccadilly Press website, where you can browse their online books to get a feel for the type they publish. They also have lovely 'fun stuff' online like colour-in pictures for children . Please note that manuscripts should be posted to this publisher - address on website.
