Clever Fox Press

Clever Fox Press logo

Clever Fox Press was founded by a former refugee. It is so much more than a publisher – we are a global gathering of freelance artists, writers and toy makers coming together to help children refugees. Our first book ‘Goodbye, Emma’ saw a roaring success, setting the stage for a bibliography now boasting twenty four children’s titles. Since Clever Fox Press was founded a year and a half ago, hundreds of books were shipped to refugee camps in Greece and Iraq and to the charities which are working with children refugees and internally displaced children in England, Canada, Germany, France, Armenia, Ukraine and Turkey. We treat children how they want to be treated – as intelligent young adults who can comprehend and explore the many social and scientific issues our stories touch on. We are a small non-profit publisher creating children’s books with a conscience – all proceeds raised are donated to charity.
