Siobhan Dowd's last extraordinary story, The Ransom of Dond, enchantingly illustrated by the hugely talented Pam Smy was published on Thursday 7th November.
Congratulations to a whopping 6 DFB authors/artists!
One of the most stunning books DFB has EVER published has at last opened its wings and taken flight: Wayland: the tale of the Smith from the Far North.
“See.” Whispered one of the soldiers,
“The man is an angel. He flies!”
And the whole crew looked on in amazement
As they watched Wayland steadily rise
Excerpt from Wayland: the tale of the Smith from the Far North
We’re new – but we’ve been around for a while! For nearly twelve years DFB has been run as an imprint – first as part of Scholastic, then of Random House. Now we’ve set up as an independent business – joining our separate but sister company, which publishes the new children’s comic The Phoenix, to form a DFB Storyhouse. Exciting times!
In our new form we’ll continue to publish the same sorts of books as before, and in the same sort of way – but with even greater enthusiasm and commitment.
