Usborne Books

British Academy is proud to be an agent for Usborne Books and Home. Usborne Books are world famous and is the biggest and most successful independent children’s book publisher in the UK. In February 2014, Usborne was named Independent Publisher of the Year and Independent Children’s Publisher of the Year in the Independent Publishers Guild awards.

Founded by Peter Usborne in 1973, Usborne books are conceived and created by editor/writers and designers in our offices in London, England, and illustrated by artists worldwide. They believe the way they work makes the books different from other children's books, and this is what makes them so well loved.

The Touchy Feely and The Farmyard books are just two of the popular young readers series. Teens and pre-teens will be delighted with Spinechillers, Whodunnit and the Young Reading series which range from A1 to B1 in content.

British Academy also organise reading programmes ''Ready Steady Read'' - a sponsored readathon, where children are encouraged to read for a fixed period in order to raise money for a library for their school or for themselves. Contact Ruth on 388 890 7864 for more information.
