Who We Are

Candied Plums is an independent publisher founded in 2016. We are dedicated to sharing inspiring and creative contemporary Chinese picture books with not only Mandarin learners but also picture book lovers. 



What We Do

With a deep commitment to the best quality, we select, translate and publish English picture books, as well as bilingual (Simplified Chinese-English) ones. This website not only showcases each title but also offers abundant Chinese learning resources.



How We Do

We work closely with all major children’s book publishers in China. Our titles have gone through rigorous selection and editorial processes. They represent some of the best contemporary Chinese picture books. 



Why We Do

As a start-up publisher, we want to work under an innovative and focused working environment and hope to curate the best collection of Chinese picture books for young readers all over the world.
