Tiny Owl is an independent publishing company committed to producing beautiful, original books for children.

Established in 2015, our energy and passion stems from our belief that stories act as bridges – providing pathways to new experiences whilst connecting us to here and there. Our stories are visually rich and conceptually meaningful. They give children unique perspectives on universal themes such as love, friendship and freedom and a greater awareness of the diverse and colourful world we live in.

We have a range of books from Iranian authors and illustrators including two beautiful tales by Rumi and one from The Book of Kings.

We are also developing a programme of intercultural projects, pairing authors and illustrators from around the globe. Our first intercultural project is A Bottle of Happiness with UK author Pippa Goodhart and Iranian illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi.

Our books have been critically acclaimed and were the subject of a feature on the Guardian website introduced by Hans Andersen Award winner David Almond.

“Thank you, Tiny Owl. This is how to improve the world, to help dispel clouds of confusion and misunderstanding, and to bring us closer together, story by story, image by image, child by child.” David Almond
