Jane Nissen Books is an imprint of Jane Nissen Books
Upon retirement from Penguin in 2001, and with the belief that children of the 21st Century should have access to some of the best-loved books of the 20th Century, many of which have gone out of print over the years, Jane Nissen set up her own publishing company with the sole purpose of bringing lost children's classics back into print. In 2007, Jane was granted the Eleanor Farjeon Award for distinguished service to the world of British children's books.
