Children's Book Publishers
Little Tiger Press
Little Tiger Press is a publisher of picture books. Their website is lovely to look at and they have a good selection of books to explore. The age range is from 0-7 years and stories should be no more than 750 words. They must be sent as hard copy, rather than email. They seem to be keen on animal stories but have a look at their online catalogue to get an idea of what they publish.
Writers don't have to illustrate their own books when sending a picture book story to a publisher. However, Little Tiger Press also accepts unsolicited illustrations from those working in that field.
Piccadilly Press accepts different types of children’s books. Picture books are for 2-5 years and should be from 500 to 1000 words. They mention that the books are 32 pages, which is quite normal in children’s books.
They also publish books for the 8-12 age range, with a variety of subject matter, especially everyday issues with humour. Teenage books should be for the 11-15 age range and are 25,000 to 35,000 words.
Piccadilly Press also publishes a range of non-fiction books for teenagers, mainly light-hearted in tone. They accept submissions by post or email.
Might be worth a try, especially when they are actively accepting new submissions. But remember to study their requirements first!
