Hungry Tomato is a young forward-thinking children’s publisher based in Cornwall. We work with both award winning and brilliant up and coming illustrators and authors to produce high interest, non-fiction, soft learning books.
Our mission…is to switch kids onto reading with our fun, fact-packed books, whilst our art, activity and puzzle books will get kids into being creative, building projects and exploring nature away from the TV.
With worldwide appeal our books are designed to stimulate and engage a child’s natural curiosity both in school and at home, wherever that home may be.
Hungry Tomato was established in 2015 with the ethos to produce titles that engage children to pick up a book and read whilst learning for fun, we call this soft-learning. It is a common thread throughout the world that many children prefer non-fiction. We specialise in producing high-interest, non-fiction content that includes STEM related subjects, art, activity and puzzle books at primary and pre-school levels. We encourage children to unplug, explore and have fun with reading and learning.
Hungry Tomato moved to Cornwall in 2019, our home is a converted old bakery, sitting at the head of the river Fal, in the ancient and cobbled city of Truro. Close to Falmouth University, renowned for specialising in the creative arts, it’s proved to be the perfect location to work with and alongside talented local artists, designers and authors.
Hungry Tomato has created over 200 successful titles enjoying worldwide appeal with over 700 language licenses sold. Hungry Tomato publishes both here in the UK and in the in the US under its imprint Beetle Books.
