About Tu Books
Fantasy, science fiction, and mystery: these genres draw in young readers like no other. Yet in these genres that readers of color might feel most like outsiders, given that such a large percentage features white characters (when they feature human characters). It is the goal of Tu Books to publish genre books for children and young adults that fill this gap in the market—and more importantly, this gap in serving our readers. By focusing on diverse settings and characters in fantastic stories, we also open up worlds to all readers.
The word “tu” means “you” in many languages, and in Ainu (the language of Japan’s native people), it means “many.” Tu Books is dedicated to publishing fantasy, science fiction, and mystery for children and young adults inspired by many cultures from around the world, to reach the “you” in each reader.
The best way to encourage a love of reading is to provide stories that all readers can identify with. Books can be both a mirror and a window to other worlds for readers. Tu Books hopes that by publishing books for children that feature multicultural characters and settings inspired by the world’s many non-Western cultures, we can offer a mirror to some, and open a window to many.
