About

Boy Reading with His DogHeadquartered in New York, NY, GumshoePress fills a void in children’s fiction. We aim to engage, entertain, and empower young minds by publishing positive, enriching tales featuring a diverse spectrum of characters who live beyond stereotypes. Our goal is to publish stories which weave science, travel, history, and principled-living into adventures parents approve, teachers value, and kids love.

More information about our published titles is available on the books page.

“Most kids like the idea of being a scientist. At 5 years old, you’re picking up bugs, making mud pies, asking questions, trying to figure out how all this stuff works. You’re discovering what’s going on in the world, which is really what science is all about. Children already have natural curiosity. As adults, we just have to make sure they don’t lose it.” –Mae C. Jemison
