Our Mission

Working with high-level talent in editorial and graphics, we believe in shuffling the publishing landscape to help incredible stories get told. We do this by embracing change and innovation, both in terms of our content and our business strategies. Our books are sold in both English and French in North America and publishing rights to our books are sold or distributed in more than 20 countries around the world.
