We are a small independent publisher specialising in reprinting children’s books that we feel are unfairly neglected and deserve to be back in print. By reissuing these titles, we are enabling collectors to acquire books that they have been searching for but also bringing the books to a new generation of readers. Our books range from 1930s adventure stories to iconic 1960s fantasy novels and from pony books by Carnegie medal winning authors to contemporary boarding school stories.
Our books are beautifully presented as larger format paperbacks with thick creamy paper and stiff card covers. We use elements of the original dustwrappers but with a modern twist and all contain forewords by or about the authors, the settings or the genres.
Fidra is publishing work by a wide range of authors. More detailed information on our books and authors can be found on the titles and authors pages, along with preview chapters for selected titles.
You can join our mailing list so that we can keep you informed of new books released. We issue a newsletter every few months which includes articles about our writers and even some short stories as well as details of the stockists from whom our books can be bought. Booksellers too can join our list and be kept up-to-date with publication dates and ordering details – as orders are placed we add their contact details to our stockist list.
