Scribble is a vibrant, eclectic list of illustrated books for children by brilliant writers and artists from around the world. Based in Melbourne, Australia.

Miriam Rosenbloom

Miriam has been working in publishing more than a decade, in both Melbourne and London. In 2011 she took up the role of Art Director at Scribe and in 2016 she launched Scribe’s first picture-book imprint, Scribble. 

Her favourite book as a child was The Quangle Wangle’s Hat by Edward Lear, featuring Helen Oxenbury’s illustration. And her favourite colour is the sky just before it gets dark. She is also mother to two daughters who are, of course, Scribble’s harshest critics.

Stephanie Siriwardene

Stephanie oversees rights and awards administration at Scribble. As a child she enjoyed travelling to desert realms, magic spells, and daring sword fights, via a well-worn junior edition of Arabian Nights. She is interested in fiction in translation and the way stories shape our understanding of the world.

Kate O’Donnell

Kate looks after the production for all of Scribble’s books and provides editorial assistance. She is obsessed with books for kids, and also works as a children’s bookseller and writer. 

Some of her favourite books as a child were Dog In, Cat Out by Gillian Rubenstein and Ann James, and Kenju’s Forest by Junko Morimoto.

Coco Carter

Coco first began working with children’s books at age 16, in her mum’s bookstore. She works as a Digital Communications Assistant in the Scribble team, helping to share our beautiful books with the community via the digital world.

In her spare time, Coco loves reading to her two small nieces, Harriet and Willow. The girls especially love Doodle Cat, as well as some of her old favourites The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, Rose Meets Mr Wintergarten by Bob Graham and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd.

FAQs

  • Do you publish ebooks?

    We love making real books—books that you can hold and smell, books that you can keep forever, and books that become part of a family’s memories. At the moment Scribble is focused on producing the best physical books we can make and we’re not currently publishing our titles digitally.
