ABOUT US

HOW WE WORK

IMMAGINATION MEETS COLLABORATION

Image
Image
Book on a Tree is a real storytelling and creative agency that works from an imaginary treehouse.

Stories provide the magic that powers our treehouse workshop. Up in the branches of our tree, our authors, illustrators, editors, and translators work as a team sharing ideas and building collaborative circles with publishers and businesses worldwide. From our secret base we craft a highly diverse range of projects, from novels to school texts, video games to animations, TV series to film scripts, website copy to transmedia bibles.

Every project has a mastermind. Every story has an author. But the author is never on their own. This is the philosophy we believe in, which is why our creative process is based on bringing together diverse talents, enabling people to collaborate and draw on each other’s abilities and expertise, breathing life into the unique projects we manage and curate with boundless passion.
