2015 New Titles & Complete Catalogue


INTRODUCTION Welcome to the fourth Nosy Crow catalogue. We were very happy to end 2014 as the tenth biggest publisher of picture books and the fourteenth biggest publisher of children’s fiction, based on sales out of UK bookshops. The gap between the biggest publishers and us is considerable but, given how small our list is, and how young we are, we’re delighted with our continued move up the rankings: it means that our books are doing disproportionately well. 2014 saw our books and apps win several prizes. We were particularly proud that Open Very Carefully won the Waterstones Picture Book of the Year, that Jack and the Beanstalk won the FutureBook Best Children’s Fiction Digital Book Award, and that Little Red Riding Hood won the Best Tech Stuff Award at the Booktrust Best Book Awards. As a business, we won Nectar Business Small Business of the Year, Growing Business Awards Young Business of the Year and Stationers’ Company Innovation Excellence Award. We also won several book industry awards, including the Independent Publishers Guild Digital Marketing Award and the Independent Publishers Guild International Achievement Award, and we were highly commended in the Bookseller Industry Awards Independent Publisher of the Year category. 2014 saw us launch enhanced iBooks for our picture books, and we continued to work closely with partners. We published Monty’s Christmas, the book of the John Lewis Christmas TV advertisement, and we’re proud to have made a board book for Unicef. We also announced an exciting partnership with The National Trust, and will launch an exclusive list of National Trust children’s books in 2016. 2015 is a year of more books for Nosy Crow. We plan to publish seventy-eight original print titles and three or four apps, starting with the fifth of our widely-acclaimed, interactive fairy tales, Snow White, in spring. We’re hugely grateful to everyone who works with us to make it possible for Nosy Crow to exist, let alone flourish: our authors, illustrators and their agents; booksellers big and small; publishers around the world who publish our books in their languages; librarians; teachers; journalists, and, of course, every single person who’s bought and enjoyed a Nosy Crow book, app or ebook. Thank you.

Kate Wilson Founder and Managing Director

The trouble with most fairy tales

When a truly terrifying sound wakes the inhabitants of a fairytale kingdom, clever Princess Daisy realises that the culprit of this dreadful din is a dragon, but the three knights who answer the king’s call for a hero prove to be nothing but NINCOMPOOPS! Oh dear, not ANOTHER fairy tale . . . but you’d better watch out because in this hilarious rhyming tale, the heroes are MOST unexpected and nothing is what it seems.

But what’s this? Riding a cow and armed with a book rather than a sword, a fourth mystery knight dares to enter the dragon‘s den. But who can it be…? Plucky Princess Daisy of course!

A fairy friendship fable!

Betty was a fairy who just never got things right. She was ALWAYS in a muddle though she tried with all her might. Poor Betty! She’s always getting into messy muddles. She can’t paint a rainbow, or scatter dewdrops and her pirouettes are, well, pretty precarious. You see, with so many animals to rescue and friends to help, there’s just no time for Betty to practise all the things a fairy should. But when it comes to the Fairy Ball, Betty’s friends return her gifts of kindness and it becomes clear who is actually the fairiest fairy of them all.  A charming rhyming story with an uplifting message.

Jane Clarke & Charles Fuge

Rhyming read-along romp!

It’s early morning in the jungle and little gorilla is NOT happy. Whoever woke him up?! As the mystery unfolds, we learn that a chain of events involving an assortment of animals all played a part, and that it all began with…Butterfly, who touched down on the same flower as Bee, which made Bee buzz, which made Frog croak, which made Crocodile thrash, and so on, until Hippo yawned the yawn that woke the baby. And what makes the baby gorilla happy in the end? Why, the dancing Butterfly that woke everyone in the first place! Irresistible illustrations, coupled with a satisfying cyclical text and repeated refrains, make this an unforgettable, read-along romp of a book by the creators of the Gilbert the Great series.

Real-life stories with real heart! When Posy goes to stay at Pip’s house they have lots of fun together before bedtime. But, just as they switch out the light, disaster strikes: Posy realises that she has forgotten to pack her favourite frog toy.

SEPTEMBER The Last Book Before Bedtime Nicola O’Byrne

Everyone knows that the very last book before bed is the best book of all. But the problem is, EVERYONE wants to be in that very last story!

Features big surprise pop-out page!

A familiar fairy tale is turned topsy-turvy when Cinderella hijacks the story of The Three Little Pigs, insisting that romantic princess stories are best. Then Little Red Riding Hood jumps in, adamant that her story is better because it’s full of DANGER. But disaster strikes when all the arguing tears a page in the book. Uh-oh! What will they do? The characters make up their own story, of course, and one with enough funniness, romance, danger AND cake (obviously) to keep everyone happy. A brilliantly-designed, multi-layered book that’s destined to be a much-requested last book before bedtime.
