Welcome to Goanna Tales Publishing and Book Shop.

Goanna Tales Publishing produces quality Australian children's picture books, early years readers, chapter books and indigenous story books.

Our Early Years picture books and readers follow the Australian curriculum guidelines and include the one hundred magic words. These first words form the basis of our language and young children are quick to recognise them within stories.

Goanna Tales has created a series of positive psychology story books for Camp Quality. The 'Smile High Club' books contain self esteem techniques designed to help children think positive thoughts and gain strength through optimism. Techniques included in these books cover important issues children face daily, including serious illness, bullying, family separation and anxiety.

Goanna Tales also produces indigenous story books. These beautiful hard cover picture books are being used to integrate indigenous culture in our schools and communities.

Look out for our new range of chapter books for confident readers.
Goanna Tales books are published in Australia using local writers and illustrators. Please browse through our bookstore or read on to find more information on publishing through Goanna Tales.
