Little, Brown and Company is a fiction and non-fiction publisher based in the US. The company published the How to Train Your Dragon Books in North America.


Little, Brown and Company was created in 1837 by Charles Little and James Brown as a publisher, importer, and seller of books. Titles ranged from many legal titles both domestic and abroad, as well as Emily Dickinson's poetry collections, Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, and Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin.

In 1968, Little, Brown and Company was purchased by Time Inc. It was later placed in Time Warner Book Group after Time, Inc merged with Warner Media to create Time Warner in 1989. At that time, all staff from Little, Brown and Company moved headquarters from Boston to New York City. The TIme Warner Book Group, along with Little, Brown and Company, was sold to Hachette in 2006.

Within Little, Brown and Company are numerous divisions, including the Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, which published Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon Book series in the US.
