Sprite Press Books





Please take a moment to honor one of the original founders of the Sprite Press website the late Mel Jacob who unfortunately passed on Oct.9th, 2018 at the age of 79. She will be greatly missed for all her achievements and her loving devotion to Sprite Press.










Sprite Press was founded in 2000 by Kim Bundy, Mel Jacob, and Sally Less. 

The marketplace for children's literature is highly competitive, and they felt that there are some good stories that need to be shared.
