Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Orion Children's Books

Born Free are delighted to be partnering with Orion Children’s Books with 2015 seeing the publishing of four non-fiction titles each re-telling our real life rescue missions. Thereafter Orion Children’s Books has extensive plans to develop and promote the brand working closely with Virginia McKenna and the Born Free team with subsequent books being released in 2016 and 2017.

Orion Children’s Books MD and Publisher, Fiona Kennedy adds: ‘I couldn’t be more delighted and excited by our new partnership with Born Free.  We share the same values, and feel they are a perfect fit for our non-fiction publishing, as well as being highly respected for the work they do to make sure that animals who are born free can live free.  We look forward to publishing inspiring books, and supporting and raising the profile of their brand still further with them.’

The first series which launches this summer features the rescue stories of lions Simba and Bella, dolphins Tom and Misha and elephants Nina and Pinkie all of whom were given a second chance at life thanks to the efforts of Born Free and our partners.

The first book in the collection ‘Born Free Lion Rescue: The True Story of Bella and Simba’ was revealed for the first time on 28th May 2015 at the Hay Book Festival by Born Free’s Founder Virginia McKenna and our long term supporter and well-known children’s book author Lauren St John who spoke to the crowds about their love of writing, Africa and animals. The book tells the stories of Bella and Simba, two lions rescued from appalling lives in captivity and brought together to live out their days in peace at the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre in Malawi and is now available for purchase from the Born Free shop.
