Funny books by funny people

Hey there and welcome to our house of Larrikins.

As the owner of Learning Discovery, I’ve been buying and selling children’s books for close to 30 years.

The next obvious step was to start a publishing imprint. The name Larrikin House was the perfect fit because it fully encapsulates the heartbeat of what I love most about children’s books – funny stories.

We’ve already published our first ten picture books, with another twenty in production over the next twelve months.  With new submissions coming in daily, watch this space for some great emerging Aussie talent.

We hope you love our books as much as we do. 🙂
