About Us

 Welcome To Our Website

Here at Tusk Books, we create children’s picture books that give a voice to those who yelp, roar, swing, moo, oink and trumpet.

We exist to help children learn about the lives of animals who don’t have a voice of their own.

Our books have captivating stories with beautiful illustrations that kids love to read again and again.

Our first book Ella, by Nicole Godwin and Demelsa Haughton, was launched on 28 August 2016 and is now available.

Learn more about our first picture book here or check out the Tusk Book FAQs.
