We are Lantana, a young independent publishing house with a mission to see all children reflected in the books they read.

That's what makes us different. We publish books that show children of colour they deserve to be the heroes of stories and we celebrate authors of colour.

Our vision is to make the world a kinder and more connected place for the next generation of young readers. We want to shout about the values we hold dear, like empathy and inclusion.

We never want a child to feel like they don't belong, based on the colour of their skin. At Lantana, their story is our story.

Testimonials

Dedicated to providing a platform for BAME authors and illustrators, Lantana delivers consistently excellent quality, as their titles have been nominated for a ridiculous number of awards given their youth and size.

Global Literature in Libraries Initiative

This book is a must have. If you’re an adult and you buy it for a child, do yourself a favour and buy two so that you can keep one for your own pleasure.

Terry Potter, The Letterpress Project

This beautiful bedtime book is a feast for the eyes and a warm, cosy blanket for the imagination. I felt as though I had been sung a lullaby, while being given a huge hug.

Tamara Macfarlane, Tales on Moon Lane bookshop
