Making publishing more inclusive

Lantana sprung from the seed of an idea back in 2014. The seed was a question: where are all the books about children of colour? The question grew into a mission: books should reflect the lives of ALL children, not just a few. And the mission grew into a publishing house, where children of all races, ethnicities, genders, abilities and orientations get to love, cherish and identify with the books they read.

Your purchase makes a difference

1 book purchased = 1 book donated
We donate one book for every book you buy from our online shop to our charity partners: literacy organisations doing outstanding work in the UK, US and across the globe to inspire a love of reading in young children. And we print our books on Forest Stewardship Council Certified paper with non-petroleum-based inks to minimise our carbon footprint.
