Swamp Life is just one of many successful new launches from The Bright Group International, which,  born out of the success of The Bright Agency, a leading illustration agency in children’s publishing, and The Bright Academy, a blossoming literary agency,  has been established to create outstanding children’s content across various commercial channels with longevity for the licensing industry.
