We have more than 11 years of work and we have several local and international awards and selections including the 2014 New Horizons Prize from the Bologna Book Fair, several selections in the White Ravens List, and the IBBY International Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities selection for 2020, also our books circulate in more than 40 countries, not only in Latin America even all around the world.
Today, when the avalanche of information floods us from all sides, we hope to make books that readers want to keep forever. We believe in books as a fundamental tool to educate and in education as a weapon against inequality. We are content generators, and we are interested in building two-way bridges between Colombian stories and authors and valuable content from around the world.
We are dreamers, and we are convinced that we can change the world, and our books are the tools for make it.
