A PEEP at What We Do
Proudly operating in beautiful Barbados as one of the leaders in children's development.
We create and publish high-quality, educational books, media and other resources for children for our authors and individual or organisational clients.
We develop educational programmes and presentations with a focus on Culture, Life Skills, Entrepreneurship, Leadership and S.T.E.A.M.
We create magic in our work and can add excitement to children's events including professional story-telling and mascot appearances in addition to video content.
Children love the "Pilly Pelican" brand and want to keep their favourite characters close via books and other products including clothing, bags and more.
“Sparking a love for literacy, learning and life as we help children to perceive, believe and achieve their unique dreams by equipping children with the tools for success.”
- Pilly The Pelican & Friends

Our highly-rated printed and electronic books are available globally via your favourite online stores and select traditional bookstores.
David Cave - Axel the Ant
I am quite surprised that my three year old son never seems to get tired of having it read to him each night. Axel the ant and Pilly the Pelican are now household names in my home!
LeeAli - Axel the Ant
I really enjoyed every bit of this book. I bought the book initially with the idea of reading it with my 3 goddaughters, but reading it prior to that, I found out I enjoyed it myself!
Kerbear - Axel the Ant
I used this book in my reading club with the 3-6 age group after having some difficulty keeping their attention with the traditional fairy tale stories. They loved it!!
