Book Publisher- Chronicle Books For Children- Open to Submissions

I've got another book publisher for you today, Chronicle Books for Children.

Who they are?
"Chronicle Books publishes an eclectic mixture of traditional and innovative children's books. We are looking for projects that have a unique bent—be it in subject matter, writing style, or illustrative technique—and that will lend our list a distinctive flair. We are interested in fiction and nonfiction books for children of all ages, as well as board books, decks, activity kits, and other unusual or "novelty" formats."

How to Submit-

General Guidelines-

Chronicle Books prefers to receive children's book submissions on paper. No compact discs, flashdrives, etc, will be reviewed.
No materials submitted will be returned.
If we are interested in your submission, you can expect to hear from us within six months after we receive your submission. Chronicle Books will not respond to an unsolicited submission unless interested in publishing it.
If your proposal is a simultaneous submission, please indicate this in your cover letter.
Please include your email address with your submission.

What to Include in Your Proposal-
Books for younger children may be submitted in their entirety without querying first. Projects for older children should be submitted by query letter, synopsis, and three sample chapters.
Since we aren't able to return any submissions, please do not send original art or anything you don't want to part with. Anything from photocopies to tear sheets will do.

Please remember not to harass editors via social media. Names are given so that you can research the types of books they publish.
