Midlothian-based author and published Susan Cohen, founded The Wee Book Company Ltd in 2018 with the aim of producing eye-catching, quality, modern non-fiction Scottish humour and children’s fiction.

Highly humorous, the books are laden with messages of love, positivity, confidence and resilience.

Much loved, the books have witnessed incredible success and the ‘wee’ business has been a fast growing one with 50k books sold in year one alone.

Sold in Waterstones and Blackwell’s stores in the UK, the company is now gearing up to sell to the US and aims to produce 22 titles by the end of 2020.

Susan credited support from Business Gateway Midlothian as playing a major part in the company’s expansion.
