I'm going International with Inside the Publishing World Wednesday. Today I'm looking at Canadian publisher Whitecap, more specifically their children's imprint, Walrus Books.
"Picture books like Gilbert de la Frogponde and Dog Tales by Jennifer Rae have become standards for library reading programs across Canada and the United States. We often have the benefit of finding new authors to introduce to the children's picture book scene, such as Dianna Bonder (Accidental Alphabet and Dogabet), and Karen Johnston (Mr. Bob's Magic Ride in the Sky)."
Teen reads include several series, mostly about horses, including Jane Ray Wildlife Rescue series by Diane Haynes; Wild Horse Creek series by Sharon Siamon; and Horse Mad series by Kathy Helidoniotis.
At the moment they are not accepting submissions, but put them on your list. Check out the Walrus blog-
