David Fickling Books is a small story house with a worldwide reputation, and we only publish 12-20 titles a year. Since going independent we have been overjoyed and overwhelmed by the incredible number of fantastic manuscripts that have flitted, floated and over-flowed through our door (over one hundred a week, wowsers!).
