(in addition to working with our talented group of artists from other parts of the world).

Below are our general guidelines and instructions for submitting

General guidelines:

  • Picture book manuscripts (1000 words or less)
  • We typically do not acquire rhyming texts, since our books must
    also be translated into German. (Although we have made some exceptions
    for rhyming texts that are very simple and original.)
  • Authors do not need to include illustrations.
  • If the author is also an illustrator, please send sample sketches in PDF or JPEG form.

What we’re looking for:

Fresh, original, fiction with universal themes that could appeal to children ages 3-8.
