“We are excited to bring on three publishers with lists that include a variety of genres and perspectives,” said Julie Schaper, Vice President, Ingram Publisher Services – Consortium. “We look forward to working with each of our new publishers to expand their reach and introduce their titles to new readers.”
Neem Tree Press is a vibrant, independent publisher of books that change and broaden perspectives. Based in London, they publish thought-provoking and provocative stories from all over the world, including children’s and young adult titles, that aim to showcase global cultures and diverse protagonists. Key titles this spring include Clytemnestra’s Bind by Susan C. Wilson and Belly Woman: Birth, Blood & Ebola: The Untold Story by Benjamin Black.
Portage & Main Press (PMP) is independent, Canadian, and woman-owned. PMP publishes a wide range of educational resources that prioritize Indigenous and marginalized voices to inspire child-centered, inclusive learning. Their imprint, HighWater Press, publishes stories by emerging and established Indigenous writers. These books are a rich mix of nonfiction, novels, graphic novels, and children’s literature that honor and support Indigenous resurgence. Key titles this spring include We Need Everyone by Michael Redhead Champagne and The Kodiaks by David A. Robertson.
Willsow books are the first ever plantable children's books, produced in the United Kingdom with special handmade paper embedded with real vegetable and herb seeds. Willsow’s aim is to educate children and adults alike about sustainability. In 2021, the company appeared on the BBC’s Dragon’s Den. Key titles for spring include The Carrot Who Was Too Big For His Bed and The Lettuce Who Wanted A New Look by Tom Lines and illustrated by Tom Ward.
