EK Books

Since 2013 EK Books has been on a mission to publish children’s books on themes that other publishers fear to touch.

Their motto is ‘Books with Heart on Issues that Matter’, and the books are crafted by authors and illustrators who have a knack for unpacking complex issues, making them engaging and memorable for even the youngest readers.
