Purple House Press

Purple House Press is proud to have sold well over 1,000,000 books. 

Their mission is to rescue well-loved children’s books of yesteryear.  Families need access to wholesome stories from a simpler time, as read-alouds or for independent readers, and for grownups to enjoy their childhood favorites.

Jill started Purple House Press in the year 2000. In a previous life (or so it seems!) she was a software engineer for 13 years. When her children were young she began selling out-of-print children’s books. But when the price of her favorite childhood book, Mr. Pine’s Purple House, rose to the discouraging price of $300, she decided to do something about it by republishing the story and ensuring its message would not be lost to future generations.
