About Formy Books

Formy Books CIC is a Community Interest Company and Independent Children’s Book Publisher, established in early 2020 by partners Ebony Lyon and Curtis Ackie. Formy Books create inclusive and authentic children’s stories, transforming everyday life into fun and fantastic adventures.

"The world is beautifully diverse, and we believe our books should accurately reflect this. To develop positive self-image and empathy, children should see themselves, and others authentically reflected in the pages they read. Our stories feature Black characters in incidental ways, simply experiencing the human experience of everyday life." - Formy Books
