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.

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

All Book Island titles are now available from over twenty countries.
