Book Club

The Curiously Good Book Club

Here you will find events, book recommendation, newsletters, competitions and exclusive offers.

And you will be in good company!

We are building a digital and real life community where people can share knowledge about great books for children (not just our books) and find creative ways to encourage children to love to read.

We will take books to places where they are not normally found, work with people we don’t normally work with – anyone who wants to encourage a child to love to read.

We want to engage the entire book ecosystem in the  Club – libraries, booksellers, schools, families, children – to support anyone who wants to encourage a child to love to read.

If you want our help to organize an event, create a book club, or if you have ideas to promote children’s books and reading, please contact us here.

The aim of the Club is simple – that every child loves to read.

Gecko Press is an independent publisher of curiously good children’s books

Gecko Press hand-picks books by some of the best writers and illustrators in the world – books of good heart and strong character, excellent in story, illustration and design.

We choose stories children and parents will want to read hundreds of times, for ages 0-14 (sometimes infinity).

Gecko Press books are the antidote to sameness. They resonate with readers who are thoughtful and inquisitive and offer different ways of seeing the world.


Kickstart the Curiously Good Book Club

We’ve met our crowdfunding target to get the club off the ground! Thank you to everyone who supported us by pledging, sharing and making noise about reading.  Find out about our events here, and see how you can continue to support the club below.
