About Egmont Publishing

At Egmont, we aspire to make all children proud readers through our broad portfolio of inclusive children’s books and magazines.

Egmont Publishing is the biggest children’s specialist publisher in the UK, reaching an average of one million children a month.

We publish books from beloved children’s authors and illustrators including Peter Bently, Enid Blyton, Julia Donaldson, Michael Grant, Steve Lenton, Lydia Monks, Michael Morpurgo, Andy Stanton, Jim Smith, Nick Sharratt, Lemony Snicket and Katherine Woodfine.

Egmont is also home to some of the most cherished children’s characters, including Winnie the Pooh, Thomas & Friends, Mr. Men and Little Miss and Tintin. We appeal to a wide range of readers by publishing bestselling children’s books and magazines for blockbuster brands like Star Wars, Minecraft, Lego, Disney Princess and Frozen.

Our magazines Toxic, Glitch and Go Girl are must-reads for primary age boys and girls who are passionate about the latest trends and hot brands.

We are proud that so many of our titles and characters have had a major impact on British culture and the wider economy (imagine a world without Winnie the Pooh, Thomas the Tank Engine, Mr. Men or War Horse!), and that countless children have grown up reading and sharing our books and magazines.

We are here to help children discover the joy that comes with reading a good book or magazine. Find out more about Egmont Publishing and explore our site to discover a world of reading.
