Our Authors and Illustrators

We believe that struggling readers need and deserve the very best books by the very best writers. Fortunately many of the best children’s authors in the UK share our belief and since Barrington Stoke was established we have been honoured to publish award-winners, best-sellers and Children’s Laureates including Michael Morpurgo, Terry Deary, Malorie Blackman, Andy Stanton, Julia Donaldson, Jeremy Strong, Anthony McGowan, Karen McCombie, Mary Hooper, Mary Hoffman, Chris Bradford, Tom Palmer, Alan Gibbons and many, many more. This means that children who struggle with reading don’t face any stigma – their books are by the same authors as the books their friends are reading, and many graduate on to read full-length novels from our authors’ main publishers.

Please note that we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts due to the specialised nature of our publications.
