About Us


We are a small, independent, family-run company, founded in 1980, to create illustrated information books for young children, aged 5 to 9. The success of our books lies in their ability to captivate children’s imagination and hold their attention through the quality of the artwork and design, and the clarity of the text.

We are passionate about learning. Our books and apps nurture children’s innate curiosity about the world around them and explain how things work and how plants, animals and people interact with their environment in everyday life. Importantly, our books encourage children to discover the world from their own unique perspective

Discovery has always been the theme behind our publishing and most of our series are named accordingly. Our most successful series – First Discovery, My First Discoveries and Torchlights – have sold over 40 million copies in 30 languages around the world.

We have benefitted from a long-term creative partnership with the acclaimed French children’s book publisher, Gallimard Jeunesse, and their outstanding team of illustrators. With publishing and marketing agreements all over the world, we operate from offices in the
UK, France and Spain.



In a world where most children are growing up as digital natives, we offer them the benefits of learning about their world through our apps. These make full use of gaming techniques and captivating audiovisual effects to engage with children, enabling them to learn as they play.

We believe that there is a place for both printed books and new digital formats in children’s lives. Children should be able to switch seamlessly between the two and benefit from both formats.



Our books and apps are also a great way for children to learn English as a second language. The exceptional visual quality of our illustrations, the simple design and clear vocabulary enable children all over the world to learn in an intuitive way. In the process they acquire valuable language skills.
