Become a Reviewer

We accept submissions of content for review from publishers, authors, illustrators, selected review sites and publicists of books, e-books, audiobooks and self-published work for children and young adults. We welcome all reviews – negative or positive – and value critical, honest discussion regarding children and young adultʼs literature.

Review Guidelines

Reviews should be 100-450 words in length and may be submitted in any official South African language. In line with the Puku Childrenʼs Literature Foundationʼs aims and missions, submissions in indigenous southern African languages are preferred. While our reviews aim to be both honest and fair, all reviews are purely subjective.

We accept children’s fiction and non-fiction as well as Young Adult (YA) fiction and non-fiction for review.
