A little about us...

Like the kids who read our books, Hardie Grant Egmont is young and small with boundless drive and energy. We are the #5 children’s publisher in Australia, and the largest Australian independent children’s publisher. We excel at making books that capture imaginations and encourage kids to fall in love with reading.


We are a small company and we use our size to our advantage. We handpick the people and partners we work with and the projects we work on and dedicate all of our efforts and resources into making them a success. We’re also a young company in both established years and average age of staff. Our youthful energy permeates everything we do.


We pride ourselves on knowing kids. Our editors bicker about the ‘facts’ in our fiction, like how many marshmallows a six-year-old can fit in their mouth, and whether an anti-gravity machine would still work in outer space. Our sales and marketing department know what makes kids tick: they’re always playing with the latest toys, watching school holiday movie releases and checking out the newest games online.


Don’t be fooled: it’s a serious business. We are acutely aware of the importance of kids’ books. After all, you’re not going to be able to read Austen or Steinbeck if you haven’t cut your teeth on Billie B Brown.
