Welcome to Phoenix Yard Books

Welcome to Phoenix Yard! We’re so pleased you could join us.

Phoenix Yard Books is an award-winning children’s publisher which originally came to life between wobbled, cobbled walls and wooden beams of a 17th century converted yard and brewery near King's Cross in London.

We aim to publish distinctive, innovative  and original picture books and fiction for children ages three to 13. Publishing for children is the only thing we do; it’s our passion. Phoenix Yard’s stylish picture book  list repeatedly pushes the boundaries of design and illustration, whilst our growing fiction list boasts strong character-based series. A flair for translation delivers the very best of French style. And we have rhyming watermelons. We describe our list as the quirky end of commercial.
