We Publish Kids Books & YA Books
Imagnary House is a boutique publisher and bookstore with a special focus on children’s books. 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. Because, we believe that enjoying the ability to read is the right of a child from all languages, areas and cultures.
“We believe that beautiful books, made of imaginative illustrations and meaningful stories, become collectables. They are a legacy of childhood to be passed onto our children, and to their children. The touch of a book, the feel and smell of the paper, being able to interact with each page is something that ignites the imagination and stays with the child forever, creating a lifelong love for imaginative story.”
Kids' Book Launch at Book Lounge
Join us as we launch The Straw Giant & The Crow, a truly heartfelt and off-the-wall story of an unlikely friendship and love.
The author, Jess Bosworth Smith, will do a live reading of the book, with some fun straw-based and colouring-in activities to be had at the same time.
Blurb: There is a field afar that holds an incredible secret... a giant lives there who is made of straw. One winter, grumpy and miserable with his cold surroundings, the Straw Giant chases away all the other animals in his field. That is, until the Crow arrives and begins to leave him little gifts each morning. A sweet and subtle friendship emerges — but will the Crow be able to last the Winter Solstice? Will their friendship defy the cold clutches of winter and last out?
