Books for Young Readers
and Giroux was founded in 1946 by Roger W.
Straus. The firm is renowned for its
international list of literary fiction,
nonfiction, poetry and children’s books.
Giroux Books for Young Readers publishes
books for toddlers through young adults and
offers softcovers under the Sunburst
Paperback imprint and Spanish language
editions of selected titles under the
Mirasol/libros juveniles imprint. The
company has an award-winning backlist that
continues to expand, in part due to the
recent additions of Frances Foster Books and
Melanie Kroupa Books. A number of the
talents with whom the company has worked,
including Natalie Babbitt (Tuck
Everlasting), Madeleine L'Engle (A Wrinkle
in Time), Uri Shulevitz (The Fool of the
World and the Flying Ship), and William Steig (Doctor De Soto), have become
recognized as creators of classic children's
books. A new generation includes Jack Gantos
(Joey Pigza Loses Control), Louis Sachar
(Holes), Peter Sís (Starry Messenger), and
husband-and-wife collaborators David Small
and Sarah Stewart (The Gardener).
