About Knights Of

Knights Of is an independent publisher of books for children, born out of a passion for children’s publishing and a desire to do something differently, to move away from the status quo and commit to facing some of the problems in the industry, independently. As an inclusive publisher, Knights Of makes books for everyone, by everyone. It aims to change the lack of diversity not just among books being published and their authors, but also in the publishing industry itself, by making commercial children’s books that have been edited, produced, designed, marketed and publicised by as many people, from as many different backgrounds as possible. Find out more at www.knightsof.media.

Knights Of are also The Reading Agency's publisher partner for the Winter Mini Challenge 2020. The Winter Mini Challenge, which runs until 15 January 2021, is a reading challenge for children to take part in over the school holidays, this year with the theme 'Everyone is a Hero'.
