Welcome to Starfish Bay

Children's Books

Starfish Bay Publishing is an independent publishing house located in Adelaide, Australia. We predominantly publish picture books for young children and only select books which strike a chord with us. Starfish Bay aims to capture children’s imaginations and maintain their interest with a thoughtful story. Established in 2014, this philosophy has remained the same ever since.

Starfish Bay wants to attract illustrators and authors and publish their books with care, expertise and passion. We publish children’s picture books by new and established authors and illustrators from around the world. Currently, we have published authors and illustrators from Iceland, Ireland, the UK, the US, China, Taiwan, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.

At Starfish Bay, books are published through the traditional process. After a decision is made to take on a picture book, we acquire the rights of the book from the author and illustrator and Starfish Bay assumes all costs in the publication of the book. Authors receive an advance and royalties.

All Starfish Bay books are distributed and sold in the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand through our sales agents and distributors. There are also plans to expand into Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, China, India, South Africa, and Europe, to maximise the audience of our books.
