Shirley Dixon

Shirley is a former teacher with 30 years of experience. Shirley established Quilty Publishing – based in Oxfordshire, England – to create travel books that her own children would enjoy. Quilty Guides are suitable for both boys and girls, aged 5 to 15.

Quilty Guides is pleased to announce a new book for summer 2017. France is a new destination travel guide designed for children aged 5-15 who are travelling to the popular European country.

Famed for its culture, arts, cuisine and rich history, modern France is a melting-pot of old and new.

This guide looks at Paris as well as every region in France – from the mountains to the beaches.

Learn new phrases, discover fascinating facts, and complete crosswords and puzzles during your journey.


Quilty Guides are a range of travel and activity books made especially for children, and created by Quilty Publishing Limited, based in Oxfordshire.

Quilty Guides are written by Shirley Dixon – a former teacher with 30 years of experience – who recognised a gap in the market while travelling with her son and daughter.

Shirley used all of her teaching and parenting experience to create Quilty Guides.

As well as books dedicated to France, Spain and Greece, there are also Quilty activity books – On The Journey and Around The World – that are suitable for any journey.

More than 400,000 Quilty guides have been sold worldwide.
