Book Island is a small, independent picture book publishing house based in Bristol, known for its range of beautifully-illustrated and thought-provoking picture books from around the world.

Founder, Greet Pauwelijn says: ‘As a publisher I am not afraid to publish books that challenge the reader, provoke emotion and push the boundaries of what is a picture book. It is not my role to be a gatekeeper, on the contrary, I want to make picture books accessible for our readers — young and old — to explore and assess themselves whether our stories are suitable for them.'

She feels very strongly about the brick-and-mortar bookshops and libraries and encourages her followers to support them instead of the online giants.
