We have been creating books with our very own distinct design and look for well over 10 years now, and during that time, I have been notoriously reluctant to take on any licenses. However, when I first came across the Schoolies, the creations of artist Ellen Crimi-Trent, I was immediately drawn to the bright, fun graphics, endearing characters, and natural educational elements. With the help of the Schoolies and our bestselling preschool formats, early learning just became even more fun!

We have been creating books with our very own distinct design and look for well over 10 years now, and during that time, I have been notoriously reluctant to take on any licenses. However, when I first came across the Schoolies, the creations of artist Ellen Crimi-Trent, I was immediately drawn to the bright, fun graphics, endearing characters, and natural educational elements. With the help of the Schoolies and our bestselling preschool formats, early learning just became even more fun!
