Big Sunshine Books is an independent children’s publishing company located in Oxford, England. Taking inspiration from the city in which we are based, famous for its authors, scholars and literary links, we specialize in interesting, beautifully illustrated stories that encourage young children to read for pleasure.

Our area of interest and expertise is in children’s picturebooks, which are often the very first books that children encounter, so we want them to look good, feel good and really capture the imagination. As parents ourselves, we know only too well that an enjoyable story can be read again and again… often in the course of one sitting!

Over time, though, we’ll also be moving into other books for the under 5s – in particular, board books, novelty books and activity books. So it’s a very exciting time for us as a company!
