Egmont is a unique book publisher. We’re part of a large media group with headquarters in Copenhagen and we’re owned not by shareholders but by a charitable foundation. We’ve donated over €350 million to children’s charities since 1920 and reinvested the remainder of our profits in the business.

From toddlers to teenagers, we inspire children to read with amazing books from Michael Morpurgo to Minecraft and Tintin to Thomas the Tank Engine.

For every young reader, our range of books, ebooks and apps will deliver. Whether that’s the perfect picture book for bedtime, the most exciting non-fiction, favourite TV character stories or the best novels to read under the covers, we bring stories to life.

Our well-loved characters and popular brands ensure that children can enjoy stories with their favourite friends or get under the skin of their latest online or gaming passion. From classics like the Mr. Men and Little Miss or Winnie the Pooh, to more modern faces such as Mr Tumble or even Minecraft, at Egmont, we’re here to ensure that we can encourage a love of reading alongside the many other influences in children’s lives.
For our fiction publishing we have the fabulously funny, the wonderfully weird, the fantastically frightening and the rivetingly real. Our books include Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, which have sold over sixty million books worldwide, the best-selling Gone series by Michael Grant, and Jim Smith’s Barry Loser, winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.

Our picture book range is bursting with brilliant bedtime stories, action-packed adventures and rib-tickling tales. Whether you fall in love with rhyming texts from Julia Donaldson, swing your sword with Kristina Stephenson’s Sir Charlie Stinky Socks or monkey around to Lydia Monks’s Mungo Monkey, our picture books will keep you entertained.

And we love facts as well as fiction! With our Red Shed imprint, we make facts fun. From Digging for Dinosaurs and Under the Sea to In One End and Out the Other and Dead or Alive?, discovering something new has never been so much fun.

We have a reputation for innovation, quality and success, which is only possible because of our focus and dedication to books for children.
