Fantasy Horse


With sustainability and ethical issues at the heart of what we're trying to achieve, our mission is to bring an amazing service of brilliantly fun picture books to whisk you away to fairytale lands and magical places while focusing on making the world a better place for our children. We don't want to take away from the magic of reading together, but just move into a new direction that is sustainable and focused on our future.

Who are we?

Currently, run by Author and Teacher and Parent, Tom Story, working with highly talented illustrators, we are a collective of PBO lovers looking to make a difference. As we grow, we want you with us all the way. We are about bringing you 'just great books' but what does that mean?

- Hand picked picture books that capture the imagination.

- A variety of stories and categories to see many perspectives and wonders.

- Well written, well created and well thought out children's books. 

- A library like no other with so much more behind each picture book story.
