Lantana Publishing is an award winning children's book publisher and social enterprise, with a mission to:

  • publish inclusive books that are changing the game of publishing,

  • create books that are environmental sustainable.

Despite a third of UK school children identifying as being Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME), fewer than 5% of books are representative of BAME characters. Furthermore, fewer than 2% are authors or book creators represented by British people of colour and even less than this are representative of the LGBTQ+ communities or disabled. Lantana believes that every child deserves to see themselves in the books they read.
