Maple Tree Press has been the publisher of distinctive, award-winning children's books for over 30 years.
Publishing under the banner of Owl Books, our history began in the early 1970s, following the launch of OWL magazine, which was to become Canada's leading children's magazine. The earliest books we published were based on articles and experiments from the magazine, and focused on science and nature.
Over the years, our publishing mandate became broader. We welcome book ideas of all kinds for children aged three to twelve. For the most part we publish nonfiction in the areas of science and nature, and activity and craft books. We also publish a diverse collection of books that celebrate Canada's history and culture.
We publish Canadian writers almost exclusively (including Canadian citizens living abroad).
If you wish to have your manuscript considered for publication, please mail it to our office along with a self-addressed, stamped return envelope. The package should be marked to the attention of the Submissions Editor. The review period is usually twelve to sixteen weeks. Full submission guidelines here.
