Posted by on Jun 7, 2017 in News, Uncategorized | 0 comments

MMS is delighted to announce that from Thursday 8 June 2017 its schools and trade teams will be representing the three imprints Scribblers, Scribo and Book House – collectively known as  SALARIYA in the UK and Ireland.  All titles are distributed by Orca Book Services and can be ordered together with all other books from the MMS Publishers.

MMS Sales Director, Andrew Macmillan said, “Salariya is a publishing house of great repute and we’re so pleased that they’ve chosen us to sell their fabulous books.  Their range of titles, including such classic series as You Wouldn’t Want to Be and You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without, will definitely strengthen the selection of titles now available from us.  They are without doubt the best UK publisher of narrative non-fiction and it’s easy to see why they were selected as the Children’s Publisher of the Year in 2010.”
