We Publish Kids Books & YA Books

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, dragons, colourful characters, kweens, magicians, vikings, and so much more.

Coronavirus: A Free Children's Book

At Imagnary House, we love to support the wonderful efforts of other publishers, authors and illustrators within the publishing industry, especially when those efforts are targeted at relieving the stress of explaining a worldwide pandemic to our children. In this vein, we are happy to guide our readers to the freely available digital version of Coronavirus: A Children's Book.
