Introducing- Picture Books by South Asian Authors: A Guest Post by Lantana Publishing

At Lantana, we believe all children deserve to see themselves in the books they read. We publish inclusive books celebrating our differences written by authors from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

Their fun, joyful and stunning picture books celebrate the influence of South Asian cultures on British storytelling traditions.
