Submission Guidelines
Submission Guidelines for Authors and Illustrators:
We encourage talented writers and illustrators worldwide to submit their work.
Poodle Doodle Press does not accept hardcopy submissions.
Please send submissions to
Sarah: purchasing10@poodledoodle.co.uk
We do not require submissions to be exclusive, but we do ask that you inform us if you are simultaneously submitting your manuscript elsewhere.
We respond only to submissions we are interested in publishing. If you have not heard from us within three months of submission, you may conclude that we are not able to publish your manuscript or that we do not require your illustrating talents at this time.

Submission Protocols for Authors
Poodle Doodle Press publishes books for children aged 0-8 years.
Our novelty books are usually in board book form. Please stick to a range of 100-200 words for the main content. Feel free to include subsidiary text beyond the 200-word limit (for example, text under flaps to be incorporated in the illustrations).  Content should be related to the daily lives of young children. We prefer board books that rhyme or that have a rhyming component.
Our picture books are usually in paperback form. We tend to prefer stories with warm or funny plots but we have no constraints as to content. Please stick to a limit of 350 words.

Submission Protocols for Illustrators
For novelty books, we prefer bright colors and strong contrast.
For other books, we have no preferences that relate to color or style. We particularly appreciate illustrators who focus on the integration of text and illustration, and we love it when ingenious details are incorporated into illustrations so that they can be appreciated on various levels. 
We are particularly interested in pop-up books and seek to accept submissions from pop-up book artists. The submission does not have to be in the form of a finished books—some sample designs are sufficient.
We appreciate diversity in our characters. Character design is entirely up to you.
Feel free to include a URL to your website or online gallery.
