  • Candlewick Press, established in 1991 and located in Somerville, Massachusetts, is the American division of the British publisher Walker Books. The logo depicting a bear carrying a candle is based on Walker Books's original logo. Candlewick is owned and operated by its employees, including 85 staff members in Somerville and more than 155 authors and illustrators. Sebastian Walker launched Walker Books from his spare bedroom in his London home in 1978. Walker Books grew and he founded Candlewick Press in 1991. Candlewick opened with only six employees and now has almost one hundred. Candlewick was first known for picture books but the company's offerings expanded to include board books, novelty books, e-books and middle-grade and young adult fiction and non-fiction. Candlewick is an important children's book publisher thanks to publications such as a series known as the 'Ologies; Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart's pop-up books; the "Judy Moody" and "Stink" franchises from author Megan McDonald and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds; Guess How Much I Love You; Martin Handford's Where's Waldo? books; Lucy Cousins' Maisy Mouse books, and National Book Award winner The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Volume 1: The Pox Party by M. T. Anderson. Candlewick's books continue to be in demand as demonstrated by recent The New York Times bestsellers I Want My Hat Back and This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen and Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made by Stephan Pastis.
