About GLUU
GLUU creates industry and school partnerships to blend the best teaching knowledge with innovative technologies. These place children at the very heart of the education experience no matter whether self or tutored learning, with a parent, guardian, mentor, or in the classroom with a teacher.



About What on Earth Publishing
What on Earth Publishing publishes children’s non-fiction books that engage their natural curiosity and passion for learning. It aims to offer readers diverse perspectives on the world and help them connect the dots to build a lifetime love of learning.

The children’s publishing company was founded in 2010 by non-fiction author and educator, Christopher Lloyd, giving rise to a range of timeline books and other titles under the What on Earth Books (WoEB) imprint. In 2019, the company formed a strategic partnership with Britannica Inc and launched Britannica Books, a second imprint, with the Britannica All New Children’s Encyclopedia: What We Know and What We Don’t. This is the first in an ambitious series of new Britannica children’s non-fiction titles to be published over the next few years.
