Gecko Press is the New Zealand-based, international imprint of Lerner Publishing Group, focused on children’s books in translation.

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.

Gecko Press publishes stories children and parents will want to read hundreds of times, for ages 0 to 12 (sometimes infinity) and prides itself on good production—design, paper, bindings, covers—and on trying to make each book the best it can be.
