Walker Books nominated for Publisher of the Year

Walker Books has been shortlisted for Publisher of the Year 2009.
Here's some reasons why provided by some of your favourite authors;

I can honestly say that if it hadn't been for Walker Books, I would have given up writing for Children aout ten years ago - and Alex Rider would never have been born.

Cassandra Clare

Walker Books will use the same cover art for the forthcoming City of Glass by Cassandra Clare as used in the USA and Australia. These covers have proved hugely successful in those territories and we are convinced that this approach will take Cassie's books to a new level in the UK & Ireland.
City of Bones and City of Ashes will be reprinted with the USA covers in the Autumn.
