Bookspeed

A family-run business based out of Edinburgh, Bookspeed makes all kinds of books for all kinds of people. But what we love is its collection of richly illustrated books to inspire kids (and grown-ups who like to dream). The Little People, Big Dreams series, in particular, pores over the lives of extraordinary people, from Maya Angelou and Marie Curie to Frida Kahlo, and tells the stories of their extraordinary childhoods.
