   Discovering Great Stories       

An independent publishing company focused on seeking out and successfully promoting high quality children’s fiction. Through our commitment and entrepreneurial drive we place imaginative and engaging books into the hands of children both here in the UK and throughout the world.

about-img2Atlantis Children’s Books was launched in 2010 to seek out imaginative works across children’s literature from both established and debut authors and illustrators. Our independent label focuses on working closely with our contributors in order to maximise the impact their finished works will have with their target audiences. By involving our authors and illustrators at each stage of developing their manuscript into a finished book, we develop both a fruitful and long lasting partnership with our team. Atlantis Children’s Books successfully acts as a platform for our artists to reach new audiences both here in the UK and overseas. For this reason we focus strongly on placing rights for our titles with the best literary agencies throughout the world.

about-img1Between 2011 and 2023 we had great success with the popular Mokee Joe series created by former teacher and author Peter J. Murray. The first three titles in this series were initially published by Hodder Children’s Books and Hachette before we continued to develop the series with books four through to the final sixth book in the series.

 A further success to our publishing list is the popular picture book series, Icky Doo Dah, by author and illustrator.

Our recent issue-led picture book Jack by author Helen Victoria Bishop has been very well received. We are proud to announce a formal endorsement from family law body Resolution and a glowing review from The Law Society.
