One Tentacle Publishing

My partner, Matt Ottley, and I have set up a small publishing house called One Tentacle Publishing, where we aim to help emerging authors/illustrators break into the market and re-print some classic children’s books.

For our first collaboration we worked closely with author/illustrator Lisa Tiffen to produce a series of quirky children’s picture books that look at the emotional world of children. The first book in the series is “Grumps“, followed by “Lovelies,” “Sorrows,” and “Frights”.

It has been a pleasure mentoring Lisa through the production of these delightful books.

Matt Ottley’s classic children’s book, ‘Mrs Millie’s Painting,’ was re-released in May 2019 in both hardcover and softcover versions.  Please visit his website to purchase a copy.
