If you have any questions, or want to get in touch, you should find your answers here.

What happens to your money?

Funds from the sale of our paperbacks will help to fund the business, the development of new books, authors, illustrators and workshops.

Funds from the sale of our hardbacks will do the same as above, but they will also fund the gift of a free paperback version of the book to a school.

Money from the sale of our fully sustainable Special Edition will fund the Free Book Drop and free workshop programme for nominated schools, through the Learn2Think Foundation.

Who do I contact with regard to Press and PR?

If you have any media, press or PR questions, please contact virginia@rapscallionpress.com.

How do I book a workshop or author visit?

We love to do author visits. If you wish to book one, please email contact@rapscallionpress.com and we will contact you. If you wish to have a P4C workshop you can either contact Sapere directly or we can facilitate that for you or your school.

As Learn2Think Foundation becomes more established, we will be offering a bursary system that helps to pay for workshops.

What ages are the books aimed at?

Our books are aimed at primary school age children (5-11 year olds), but we have found younger and older readers enjoyed them too.

When will the books be in bookshops?

We are currently selling directly in from our website, through schools and other independent channels. It is also available from the Magic Bookshop aka Primrose Hill Books, and we are talking to other independent bookshops about stocking it.

Do you ship overseas?

We do ship overseas. When the business goes fully commercial, we will be charging postage and packing and we will be shipping to the majority of locales.

I'm an illustrator, will you take a look at my work?

We are always keeping an eye out for new illustrators, so if you feel that your style would fit one of our series focused on smart thinking for children, please get in touch.

What is P4C?

P4C is a method of teaching focused on getting children to think and communicate well; to think better for themselves.

Are the books part of the curicculum?

We have designed our books to be complementary to the curriculum. For example, Journey to the Beginning of the World can be used to illustrate ideas in PSHE, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Creative Writing,  Art and in assemblies.

Can children really learn philosophy?

We’re not trying to teach them philosophy but rather to teach them to think philosophically: to learn to question, think conceptually and learn to reason.

If the book is damaged in some way, you are welcome to return it for a replacement.

Are you listed on Amazon?

At the moment we have no plans to sell our books through Amazon.
