We Publish Kids Books & YA Books

PSST! We're providing free resources for parents and teachers

Imagnary House is a book publisher and bookstore with a special focus on children’s books and young-adult literature. We have a big heart for children’s literacy and imaginations in South Africa. One day, we hope to make the children's books that we love available in every part of our beautiful country (and world). Because, we believe that enjoying the ability to read is the right of children from all languages, areas and cultures. 

Dive into our newest pages and discover roaring monsters, colourful characters, afro kweens, magicians, vikings, and so much more.

Publish a book for your organisation

Wanting to publish a book or book series for your business or organisation? Since launching our partner-publishing services, we've been fortunate enough to work with some incredible clients, like NSRI and Inspiring Fifty

Perhaps you haven't quite formed the story of it yet, or maybe you have a ready manuscript. Either way, we walk you through the process, helping you to conceptualise, plan, produce, market, distribute, and sell your book. We will assign a professional publishing consultant to your project, who works with you every step of the way, making sure you stay within your budget and get the reach you need for your project. > Talk to us

We’ve been shortlisted for the Bologna Prize for Best Children’s Publishers of the Year! The award is of a very respected class in the industry because there are only six publishing houses per year that are awarded with the title (one from each designated geographic area). The Bologna Prize for the Best Children’s Publishers of the Year highlights publishers who are at the forefront of creativity and innovation.
