indie books for kids

Discover hidden gems from passionate children's book creators. Buy a gift for a little person in your life and your money goes straight to the makers.


As trade publishing becomes more and more competitive, many talented creators take the leap into indie publishing to hone their craft and get more beautiful books into children's hands.

Top Indie Kids’ Books aims to showcase a small, evolving collection of hand-picked hidden gems from some of Australia's most passionate picture book authors and illustrators.

While many distributors and online retailers offer book creators as little as 2 to 10 per cent of profits from sales, Top Indie Kids’ Books will offer creators 80 per cent of profits, reserving only a small fee for administration.

Most indie creators already have their own websites and online shops, but - with only one or two titles in store - the sites often have poor visitation. Plus, authors and illustrators need as much time as possible to create, rather than tinker with websites.

Top Indie Kids’ Books aims to offer ‘strength in numbers’ for indie creators and a ‘one-stop-shop’ for picture book lovers.

Please enjoy these special titles, and help us share the love.
