As you may know, we’re becoming quite well known in the history publishing world – some of our books have rapidly become go-to reference books or best selling historical fiction.

Well, we’ve recently been working with two authors to create two children’s book series. Here’s the inside story…

Amy Licence – The “All about…” series

Westminster Abbey
Amy Licence is well known in the Tudor world as being an amazing historian. She’s written a number of books for adults which have been very well received. However, she wanted to bring history to a younger audience. Therefore, together with MadeGlobal Publishing, Amy has been writing a series of children’s books which we’re publishing under an “All About …” banner.

This series focuses on each of the kings and queens, starting with Richard III and ending with Elizabeth I. In all there will be seven books in this series. They’re going to be full colour and will have simple-to-understand text for young readers, plus more detailed information for parents to read aloud or for more able readers.

Of course, Amy Licence does some amazing research, so we’re excited that finally children will be able to appreciate the actual stories of these fascinating historical characters. Oh, and did we say that they will be stunningly illustrated too (just see the image of Westminster – lovely eh?).

Alan Wybrow – The “William” Series

William-KindlingGoing even younger with our readers, respected children’s book illustrator Alan Wybrow approached us to see if we’d help him to bring his character “William” to market. William is a young boy in the times of Henry VIII and what an adventure he’s going to have!

Alan is meticulous in his work, and he puts so much feeling into his illustrations. Yet they are perfectly accessible to even the youngest of children. Our hope is that “Tudor Mums, Dads and Grandparents” will enjoy reading these books with their children. They’ll be historically correct and most importantly a lot of fun.

It’s going to be a busy summer

With all this work going on, you’ll appreciate how much is going on here at MadeGlobal Publishing. We’ve also got a number of grown-up historical fiction books coming out soon … more about that in another post.
