Usborne is the biggest and most successful independent childrens book publisher in the UK. In February 2014, Usborne was named Independent Publisher of the Year and Independent Childrens Publisher of the Year in the Independent Publishers Guild awards. They have around 2,000 titles in print, and publish almost every type of children's book for every age group, from baby books to young adult novels.
Founded by Peter Usborne in 1973, Usborne books are conceived and created by editor/writers and designers in our offices in London, England, and illustrated by artists worldwide. We believe the way we work makes our books different from other children's books, and this is what makes them so well loved.
