Welcome to Oyez!Books for Children!
Oyez!Books specialises in children's books especially books that highlight local heritage or that addresses values. We emphasize the art of picture books with well-written stories that encourage reading as well as leave a good memory for children. In other words, books that children will want to return to.
Since 2007, we have published close to 100 titles. Our authors and illustrators read like the Who's Who of Malaysian writers and illustrators. They include Yusof Gajah, Jainal Amambing, Awang Fadilah, Rossiti Aishah Rashidi, Farrah Asheila Samsuri, Emila Yusof, Peter Worthington, Khairul Azmir Shoib, Quek Sue Yian, and Nur Azmi Mokhtar.
We have been participating in local and international fairs since 2008 including the Kuala Lumpur Trade & Copyright Fair, Bologna Children's Book Fair, the Frankfurt Book Fair, the Beijing Book Fair and the Abu Dhabi Book Fair.
In 2012, we started looking at translations with a view to bringing the best children's books from around the world for Malaysian children.
We also run a small bookshop and gallery for illustrations and a children's library in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. It's called Oyez! Art & Books. We hold various events and like to have parties to meet with book lovers.
