Reaching Out to Our Customers

Our purpose above all else is to inspire children to read. To do that – to get our books out there – we depend on the relationships we build and maintain. Only through those relationships can we sell books effectively and reach our readers.

This means the relationships we have with people and companies in the book trade are particularly important to us. Whether you’re a bookseller, supermarket, online retailer or department store, we see you as our partner. Together, we want to reach as many readers as possible by selling our books. Books that we’re all passionate about.

Are you a retailer looking for an exclusive book product? We can do that. We’ve set up CanDo Publishing, which works with customers in the business world to create exclusive products for retailers or as sales premiums for Fast-Moving-Consumer-Goods customers, such as a voucher collect on a soft drink.

You can discover our whole range of publishing by browsing our catalogue – just click on one of the links to download a pdf or view it online.
