About us

Book Island is an indie publishing house for picture books in translation, specialising in beautifully illustrated, high-quality picture books that can be enjoyed and treasured by both parents and children.

All of our unique titles are sourced from around the globe and translated into English for the UK, New Zealand and Australian market.

The company was founded in 2012 in New Zealand by Belgian-born translator Greet Pauwelijn, and in 2016 moved to Bristol in the UK.

Book Island titles are now available from every good book and gift shop in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Ireland.
