In 1992, Candlewick Press opened its doors as an independent children’s publisher, and we remain the world’s leading creatively led independent publisher of books and content for children today.

Candlewick Press arrived on the scene with some of the highest-quality picture books available. Since then, our offerings have grown to encompass all ages, with formats from board books to e-books and content from high-end novelty to cutting-edge fiction. Thousands of awards and accolades later, we are as passionate as ever about producing excellent books that are a joy to hold and read and share.
