BiographyHistory

'Scholastic Australia is part of Scholastic Inc, the world's largest publisher and distributor of books, magazines, educational and multimedia materials for children, with offices in the US, Canada, Argentina, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mexico, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Kingdom.'

'Scholastic Australia has a strong commitment to children and education. The company believes that children and educators deserve the best-access to the highest quality literature and learning materials from Australia and throughout the world. As part of this commitment, the company is dedicated to working together with children, teachers and parents to foster the wellbeing and talents of all Australian children.'

'The company's ownership of the Australian Children's Literature Collection at Dromkeen in Victoria is further evidence of this commitment. An accredited museum, Dromkeen houses original artwork, preliminary material and manuscripts from both historic and contemporary children literature. Equally, the company has a strong and continuing tradition of commitment to the Australian children's book industry, promoting the unique talents of our award-winning and emerging Australian children's authors and illustrators. In 1996, the Children's Book Council's Awards Foundation was launched to raise money to continue the Book of the Year Awards and Scholastic was designated a Benefactor of the Awards Foundation.'

'Scholastic Australia publishes books for children under three publishing imprints - Scholastic Press, Omnibus Books and Margaret Hamilton Books.'
