Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Books that celebrate the richness and diversity of our world today.

Frances Lincoln first began to publish books for children in 1983. Like her adult list, Frances’s first children’s books reflected her keen interest in art and the great outdoors, as well as visual storytelling. Today, FLCB is one of the world’s most respected creators of picture books and gift titles that celebrate cultural diversity, as well as narrative non-fiction. The list is strongly supported by bookshops, libraries and institutions internationally, and we pride ourselves in working with some of the world's most innovative illustrators and storytellers.
