About Our Company:
About Hippo Park:
Named after beloved New York City playground, Hippo Park is intended as a kind of “playground of books” where kids know if they pick up a Hippo Park book, they’ll find out something wonderous about the world; they’ll see the world upside down, perhaps feel like an animal for a little while, and see their big feelings reflected in stories. The magic is the connection between creator and reader—our books give kids that little bit of humor, adventure, or tenderness that helps them navigate the unpredictable, often silly, and almost always befuddling world in which they live.
mineditionUS is dedicated to publishing exceptional children’s books from around the world. Our mission is to find, create, and publish artistically sophisticated books that are built to last. Our books expand children’s experiences as well as their hearts and minds, opening doors to cultures and places they may not yet know. We believe that high-quality, beautifully crafted illustrated books not only help children develop a deeper appreciation of language and art, they also foster emotional awareness, intellectual discernment, and a greater understanding of the multicultural world in which we live.
