What do Michael Morpurgo, Enid Blyton, Lemony Snicket and Michael Grant all have in common? They are just some of the amazing authors and illustrators that Egmont is proud to publish.

Our list of classic authors reads like a who’s who of best-loved children’s writers: Enid Blyton, A.A. Milne, Shirley Hughes, Antoine de Saint Exupery – all giants of children’s literature whose work is as loved today as when first published.

And complementing these greats we publish some of the most exciting and talented names in writing today, whether it’s Michael Morpurgo, Lydia Monks, Andy Stanton, Michelle Magorian, Anne Fine, Kristina Stephenson, David Levithan or Elizabeth Wein. The list goes on! These are all writers who have the ability to reach people through their books and help turn children into lifelong readers.

At Egmont our raison d’etre is to turn children into passionate readers. The key to this is turning writers into successful authors. We are committed to helping our writers and artists to flourish, and pride ourselves on our author and illustrator care. We seek to work with the most creative people, from big names to fresh new talent, and to offer help and support every step of the way.
