Launching in June 2015, Hutton Grove will specialise in beautifully illustrated picture books and will initially publish nine titles for 2-7 year olds, including Eva Montanari’s A Wolf’s Tale and Witches and Fairies, Vegetable Glue (written by Susan Chandler and illustrated by Elena Odriozola) and Munch (written and illustrated by Emma McCann).
The first nine titles will be followed by another eight in Autumn 2015, when the line will also be introduced into the US market with distribution partners Lerner Publisher Group.
“With the addition of Hutton Grove, Lerner Publisher Services expands its offerings by adding a high quality line of picture books with full-colour illustrations and original artwork that will actively engage enthusiastic young picture book readers,” said David Wexler, Executive Vice-President of Sales for Lerner Publishing Group.
The books will be available in all good bookshops from 25th June 2015.
