    • Book Island | Fox Lane Books

      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. ​ ALL BOOKS ARE HARDBACK Quick View The Rabbit and the Shadow Price £14.99 Quick View Up the Mountain Price £12.99 Quick View The Big Question Price £12.99 Quick View One House For All Price £12.99 Quick View Maia and What Matters Price £12.99 Quick View Emmett and Caleb Price £11.99 Quick View Little Wise Wolf Price £12.99 Quick View Here Comes Mr Postmouse (hardback) Price £12.99 Quick View Virginia Wolf Price £11.99 Quick View Fox & Goldish Price £11.99 Quick View The Umbrella Price £11.99 Quick View The Golden Cage Regular Price £19.99 Sale Price £15.99 Quick View Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich Price £13.99 Quick View Mum's Jumper Price £12.99 Quick View The Bird Within Me Price £12.99 Quick View The Garden of Inside-Outside Price £12.99
