In 1978, I opened a children’s bookstore in my hometown of Hasselt, Belgium. Shortly thereafter, I decided to publish thebooks I wanted to place on the shelves. This is how ClavisPublishing began. Now, thirty years later and with over twohundred titles published annually, Clavis—“key” in Latin—has opened the door to our New York office and entered theUS market.Clavis publishes books for toddlers and young children thatfollow simple and accurate keys which specify the appropriateage ranges and fundamental concepts of each book. We alsopublish picture books by internationally renowned authorsand illustrators, many of whom have already been publishedin the US, as well as a wide range of entertaining and literarymiddle grade and young adult fiction. Over time, our list willcontinue to grow, including books originated in the US.In Belgium and Holland, Clavis hosts open houses forauthors and illustrators so we can discover new talent; we’llbe doing the same in New York City very soon.We love hearing from and meeting with booksellers,librarians, teachers, and parents, so if you’ve read our books,please let us know. Clavis is driven by the belief that readingbooks broadens children’s minds, increases their knowledge,and instills in them a greater sense of empathy. Booksstimulate the imagination and help children develop theirown talents and create their own dreams. Together we canmake children’s’ dreams come true.
