fter six straight years on the shortlist, Usborne scoops Children’s Publisher of the Year for an exceptional 2019. Nearly half a century on from its


creation, Peter Usborne and, now, daughter Nicola continue to take the business to new heights. TCM sales jumped nearly 7% and growth overseas, where Usborne makes most of its money, was even faster. With nine international imprints and translations into well over 100 languages, this is a truly global publisher. Last year’s highlights included celebrations


for 20 years of publishing the phenomenally successfully That’s Not My… series, which sells a book a minute in the UK. Rebecca Hill, Editor of the Year at last year’s Nibbies, continued to build her acclaimed fiction list, with Holly Bourne, Peter Bunzl and Sophie Anderson among its stars. “It was an amazing year for an incredible publisher,” concluded the judges. Beyond its


21


publishing, they were hugely impressed by Usborne’s progressive ethos. Its industry leading care of staff includes generous pay, superb perks, sabbaticals and clear career progression—all of which make for a company that few people seem to leave. The Usborne Academy gives a publish- ing leg-up to people from diverse backgrounds through a fully paid week of work experience, and the Usborne Foundation supports vital literacy projects. “Usborne looks after its staff brilliantly... it’s so clear it’s a family-run affair,” judges said.


HIGHLY COMMENDED in this category is Scholastic. Near double-digit sales growth made it the TCM’s third-biggest kids’ publisher in 2019, and Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler delivered the year’s top-selling picture book. It made big strides on diversity, green issues and staff care too. “It had a really impressive year of growth, innovation and reaching new communities,” said the judges.
