David Fickling Books

David Fickling Books Ltd (DFB) became an independent publishing house in July 2013 following 12 years as an award-winning imprint, first with Scholastic and then Random House. They have published several prize winning and bestselling books including Lyra's Oxford (from the world of His Dark Materials) by Philip Pullman, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne, Bing Bunny by Ted Dewan, Pants by Nick Sharratt and Giles Andreae, Before I Die by Jenny Downham, Trash by Andy Mulligan (shortly to be a major movie with script by Richard Curtis) and A Boy, a Bear and a Boat by Dave Shelton.

They are the only publishing house to have ever won the Branford Boase Award three times.

DFB also works closely with The Phoenix Comic, a weekly story comic for children which David Fickling himself founded.
