Rock the Boat

Rock the Boat is the children’s imprint of the award-winning independent publisher Oneworld. It aims to publish exciting and original stories from around the world, expanding the choice available to readers from the very young upwards.

We believe passionately in the power of great storytelling. Our books showcase a richly diverse range of themes and subjects, are often gritty, often inspiring, always thought-provoking and above all encourage children to believe that wherever they are from, whatever challenges they face, nothing should hold them back. Great books open a window on how other people live, helping children to see the world in a different light and sparking their imaginations. But, most importantly, Rock the Boat believes in publishing books that showcase great writing and sensational stories – books that children genuinely want to read and engage with.

Since launching in 2015, we have published chart bestsellers, prize winners and been featured in numerous round-ups. Our books have been chosen by The BookTrust’s school programme and several are currently under option for film. Notable titles include the Aurora trilogy by New York Times bestselling authors Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann, and The Sky is Mine by Amy Beashel – a hard-hitting YA debut shortlisted for the Bristol Teen Book Award 2020 and nominated for the 2021 CILIP Carnegie Award.

Welcome to Rock the Boat. Come aboard.
