Firefly Press – let your imagination fly

Firefly Press is an independent children’s and YA publisher based in Cardiff and Aberystwyth. Set up in 2013, Firefly is the only dedicated children’s publisher in Wales and publishes quality fiction for 5-19 years olds. We aim to publish books by great authors and illustrators wherever they are from.

We launched our Dragonfly series for 7-10 year olds in May 2014 part-funded by the Welsh Books Council and set in contemporary Wales. Dragonfly stories are funny, fantastical, scary, exciting and full of adventure. 

Many of our books were included in the 'best of children's and YA books 2015' lists and listed for awards including Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot by Horatio Clare, which has been long listed for the Branford Boase Award 2016. Dottie Blanket and the Hilltop by Wendy Meddour was shortlisted for the Tir na n-Og Award and Dragon Gold by Shoo Rayner and The Shiver Stone by Sharon Tregenza were both highly commended for the same prize.
