Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Books!

We are an independent children’s book publishing company based in Durham, North Carolina. Our promise is to strengthen children’s connection to nature and to foster a sense of wonder, hope and possibility. We believe that all children are gifted, that every voice deserves to be recognized and heard, and that our planet is our greatest teacher.

We specialize in original fiction and non-fiction for the middle grades (ages 8-12).
