“The right book at the right time for the right child has the potential to create a reader for life.”

Helmed by Vice President and Publisher Margaret Anastas, the editor behind modern classics such as Fancy Nancy and Pete the Cat, Flamingo focuses on publishing commercial picture books from familiar names and debut creators. With a small but mighty team that includes editor Cheryl Eissing, assistant editor Claire Tattersfield, and assistant art director Sophie Erb, Flamingo is committed to building a list of books that are un-skippable.
