Nosy Crow is a small, independent company. We began publishing child-focused, parent-friendly children’s books and apps in January 2011.
In 2012 and 2013, we won the Independent Publishers Guild’s Children’s Publisher of the Year award. We’ve also won many other prizes for individual books and apps, for international achievement, and for being innovative and entrepreneurial.
We publish high-quality, commercial fiction and non-fiction books for children aged from 0 to 14 by well-known authors and illustrators and by new talent. Making well-designed physical books is important to us, and we think carefully about covers, paper type and paper weight so that our books are attractive to look at and pleasing to hold. All of our fiction appears simultaneously in print and ebook form. All of our paperback picture books come with a free digital audio reading using an innovation we’ve called Stories Aloud.
We make innovative, multimedia, highly interactive apps for tablets, smart phones and other touchscreen devices. These apps are not existing books squashed onto screens, but instead are specially created to take advantage of the devices to tell stories and provide information to children in new and engaging ways. We don’t want reading to be the most boring thing a child can do on a touchscreen.
