About us

Buster Books, the children’s imprint of independent publisher Michael O’Mara Books, turns fifteen years old.

Our list includes sumptuous colouring books – from the pocket-sized I Heart Colouring series, to The Book of Beasts, a stunning, fully-foiled hardback with information about mythical monsters as well as images to colour.

We always seek to bring a new twist to established genres – check out The Colossal Creature Count, an epic creature-counting challenge, or Colourtronic, a colour-by-numbers activity book that produces unexpectedly striking results. There’s Dress Up Taylor Swift which offers stylish stickers and Painty Prints which needs inky fingerprints to complete charming pictures. Kids are even encouraged to Destroy This Book in the Name of Science, a book full of fun, interactive science projects.

A bumper birthday year for Buster.

– Philippa Wingate, Publishing Director, Buster Books
