About Imagine That Publishing

In 2018 we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary of independent publishing and packaging.

During the past 20 years we have seen several major changes in the publishing landscape. And with these changes, our business has continued to adapt: our publishing programmes have evolved and grown, our portfolio of packaging services has expanded, we’ve challenged business models, we’ve tested new ideas, and amidst all of this we have remained steadfast in our mission to inspire children to read, learn, play and create.

This year I am excited to announce that as we celebrate our heritage and launch the next major chapter in our story, Top That Publishing will be renamed and rebranded to Imagine That.

Imagine That will publish three distinct imprints – each with a separate focus, and each forming an important contribution to our mission.

The headline Imagine That list will take children on a creative journey of reading and learning, focusing on interactive and stunning novelty and activity books, including the multi-award-winning Arty Mouse brand.

The established Top That brand name is now dedicated to the company’s world-leading activity and craft books with components kits.

And we are incredibly excited to launch our new fiction imprint, Willow Tree, which will publish picture story books and chapter fiction from loved and trusted authors for children and parents to share together.

We are on course for our third successive year of double digit growth, and I am incredibly proud to lead such a talented and enthusiastic team into our next phase of our story.  I recognise that these achievements could not have happened without them, or without the support of our clients, retailers, contributors and suppliers – so thank you!

We look forward to 20 more years of publishing wonderful children’s books, and we look forward to continuing to work with you to bring our collaborative ideas to life!
