Introducing Tiny Tree – The New Home Of Children’s Books From Matthew James Publishing

posted by Anthony on July 1, 2016


Matthew James Publishing is proud to introduce Tiny Tree; a brand new branch of the MJP family dedicated to children’s books.

James Shaw, publisher, and editor at Matthew James Publishing says the name Tiny Tree was a clear choice. “As you know, our logo is and has always been the tree that you see on all of our books. We wanted the new imprint to reflect that history but also symbolise growth, learning, and new beginnings. That’s why we decided on Tiny Tree”.

The first book to fall under the new imprint from the beginning is Monsters in My Maths Book; the new children’s book from Russ Brown and Jamie Cosley. “We’ve worked with them before on [The Mechanics of] Mechanicsville and with Russ on The Field Feud, so we’ve got a great relationship with those guys”, says James. “We can’t thank them enough for letting us make Monsters [in My Maths Book] the first book to come under the new imprint. There’s a lot of trust there”.

“It was a way to further distinguish our children’s books from our other titles. The addition of the Tiny Tree imprint to the MJP family is the full realisation of that”.

Matthew James’ other children’s books, both past, and present will also fall under the Tiny Tree imprint from here on out. This is a plan that the company has had in mind for a while, it’s just taken a little longer to come to fruition than expected. “You’ll notice that More Than a Me was the first of our books to include the red spine, this continued through The Mechanics of Mechanicsville and most recently Monsters in My Maths Book.” James continues: “The idea itself was inspired by Little Golden Books. It was a way to further distinguish our children’s books from our other titles. The addition of the Tiny Tree imprint to the MJP family is the full realisation of that”.

The current books, of course, are unaffected. “Those books still have the classic Matthew James logo on them, although that will change in the event of a reprint,” adds James. “The biggest thing to make clear from our point of view is that Tiny Tree is not a separate company. It is very much a part of Matthew James and you will still be able to get Tiny Tree books through the MJP website and through all other retailers”.

Tiny Tree is not a new book; just a new chapter for Matthew James Publishing.

The current selection of Tiny Tree books can be seen below.
