The Old Lion Publishing House (Vydavnytstvo Staroho Leva) was founded in 2005 in Lviv. Now it is one of the leading Ukrainian publishing houses that specializes in children’s literature for different age groups.
 
We publish board books for the youngest kids, picturebooks for pre-school and middle grade readers, as well as poetry and fiction books for children and young adults. We work with the most talented authors, translators and illustrators from Ukraine and from abroad.
 
We try to popularize and promote literature for children and young adults (for instant, by publishing books in Braille). We have 18 book series for children and young adults, including educational books, fairy tale classics, and realistic fiction (about otherness, living in multicultural families, etc).
 
Having received more than 30 awards during its history, the publishing house continues to develop, increasing the number of books, improving their quality, and actively engaging itself and its partners into socially important projects.
