Welcome Bodleian Children's Books!
Bodleian Library Publishing has launched the Bodleian Children's Books imprint, which will be distributed by University of Chicago Press in the US.
The press release says that this imprint will focus on forgotten gems and beautifully illustrated volumes. I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for something that will rival The New York Review Children's Collection. (Which, by the way, has several books on sale for the summer.)
The first two books published by Bodleian Children's Books will be Penguin’s Way and Whale’s Way by Johanna Johnston and illustrated by Leonard Weisgard. The 2016 list includes Veronica by Roger Duvoisin and The Story of Babar by Jean de Brunhoff.
