The vision of Little Cam Books is to publish a portfolio of classic, yet contemporary, award-winning titles that will thrill and feed the imaginations of young readers and listeners. Our books are cherished by parents and children alike, evoking nostalgic memories and capturing contemporary childhood dreams in equal measure.
We are proud to be the home of the first in a series of market-leading picture books following the adventures of Fitz and Will, the Cambridge Cats. The May Ball Adventure, published in May 2014, has become one of the fastest-selling children's picture books in the region. The Graduation Adventure was launched at The Cambridge Literary Festival in April 2015 and work has already started on creating the next Fitz and Will book, The Christmas Adventure, due to be publised in October 2015.
Little Cam Books was established in 2013 by Katherine Mann and Laura Robson Brown who remain joint partners. Little Cam Books is based in Cambridge, UK.
