Hardie Grant Egmont make books that kids want to read!
We excel at making books that capture imaginations and encourage reluctant readers. We are the largest Australian-owned children's publisher and pride ourselves on publishing first and foremost for kids.
We publish for emerging readers and guide them through all levels to fantastic young adult fiction.
HGE’s local publishing has established us as experts in creating best-selling series fiction for kids. Our first readers adore the bright and bubbly Billie B Brown and her best friend Hey Jack!, while older kids love the real-life stories in Go Girl and the cool spy action in Zac Power. We also have exciting stories about Naughty children, Flat children and children who climb The Magic Faraway Tree.
Middle-grade readers go straight to creepy Monstrum House and the thrilling Phoenix Files series. Girls flock to our heart-warming Girl V The World books, which aim to grab those girls who are ready to move on to more complex and emotional storylines, but aren’t yet ready for the heavier issues in YA fiction. These readers also love the classic tales of schooling at Malory Towers and the hard life on the Prairie.
Our YA list explores all the experiences of modern teenagers – toxic friendships, the dark side of professional ballet, all-consuming first love and much more. We also have the brilliant GONE series by Michael Grant, about a world in which everyone over the age of 15 has disappeared.
HGE is committed to working with new and emerging YA writers, so in 2011 we launched the inspiring Ampersand Project, which garnered worldwide attention and coverage. Click here for more details.
