Orca Book Publishers


Orca is a publisher of high quality, award-winning books for children and teens and reluctant readers of all ages. From beautifully illustrated picturebooks through captivating juvenile fiction and compelling novels for teen readers to professionally-written teachers’ guides, Orca is dedicated to bringing the best possible books to young readers.

Orca Book Publishers is committed to ensuring that young readers see themselves reflected in the books they read. We aim to produce books that illuminate the experiences of people of all ethnicities, people with disabilities and people who identify as LGBTQ. Our goal is to provide reading material that represents the diversity of human experience to readers of all ages. We are mindful of this in our selection of baby board books, picture books, early chapter books, nonfiction for middle readers, and fiction for young adults. We have a particular interest in publishing books that celebrate the lives of Indigenous people. Our fiction includes characters from diverse backgrounds and unique family structures, and our global nonfiction celebrates the variety of ways people live and educates readers about important issues.

Providing young people with exposure to diversity through reading creates a more compassionate world. And if you look around at what is happening in the world today, we could use some more compassion.
