At Letterland, we believe that small is beautiful. We are a family-owned independent publisher with a big reputation to uphold. Our mission has always been to ensure that as many young children as possible have fun learning to read, write and spell. We want our smallest customers to enjoy our books and to develop a love of reading that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. In 1968, Lyn Wendon created Letterland at her kitchen table and, over 50 years later, the Wendon family still own and run Letterland, meaning we have never lost sight of our goal!

Originator & Author
Lyn Wendon created Letterland while working as a peripatetic special needs teacher in primary schools and simultaneously raising three small children. Not being able to bear the thought that children were struggling at school, Lyn created a phonics system that made reading and writing accessible to all. Over 50 years after the creation of the original Letterland characters, Lyn is a consultant to the business and plays an active part in making Letterland the worldwide success it is today.
