Since the publication of our books, we have had a humbling amount of interest in our vision and mission. We are always keen to find new opportunities to talk about our work because we believe strongly enough in the power of literacy to change lives.
Not only that, we are painfully aware of the representation & diversity gap that exists in middle-grade literature today. Its a dire state of things to think that an animal or an in-aminate object like a shoe or piece of stick has an 38% chance of being a character in a book whilst ethnic minority people have a 5% chance.
Below is some of our recent press coverage. We are interested in hearing from journalists or members of the press who would like to know more about Mbawa Books, Happier Every Chapter and why we do what we do. Please send us a message or reach out via social media.
