Dial Books for Young Readers
 
Dial Books For Young Readers publishes hardcover books aimed at children of all ages, including young adults. They are an imprint of Penguin that accepts unsolicited submissions. The catch? They do not respond to unsolicited submissions unless they are interested in the book. That means don’t expect a rejection from Dial, personal or otherwise.
 
Dial publishes around 70 new books a year. Many of the books they publish are picture books. It has published a huge number of New York Times bestsellers. It was one of the first places to publish quality board books in the US. Dial has published a lot of character driven middle reader and young adult books by authors like Marilyn Nelson, Catherine Fisher, and Holly Goldberg Sloan.
