Showcasing the very best in literature for the young, Ravenstone will publish one book a season. It will exist to highlight works of genre-busting adventure, and incisive and challenging writing.
In a major coup for a brand new imprint, the launch title will be the beautiful debut novelÂ Lupus Rex, by the high-profile musician and writer John Carter Cash, son of legendary singer Johnny Cash. To be published in June 2013, Lupus Rex will have enormous appeal to children and older readers alike. This astonishing new tale is in the tradition ofÂ Watership Down,Â The Rats of Nimh, theÂ RedwallÂ series andÂ Duncton Wood.
Editor-in-chief Jonathan Oliver said: â€œThe Young Adult market is a vibrant and exciting melting pot of genres and ideas and Iâ€™m delighted to lead us into this territory with our new imprint.â€
