Create Chapter Book

100% Free

The Imagine Forest chapter book creator is 100% free! There are no hidden costs or subscription fees. You can publish as many chapter books as you like, and each chapter book can have a maximum of 50 chapters. Each chapter can be any length long. You can even use our library of images, cover templates and more - All for Free! Plus you can download a PDF version of your chapter book for free.

Easy Chapter Book Maker

Our chapter book maker is one of the easiest-to-use tools on the market. Simply start by creating a cover, and then you can start adding in your chapters. Each chapter you add can have a custom chapter title or you can use the default numbered chapters approach. And if you need a break from writing your book, our creator automatically saves your work every 2 minutes. Alternatively, you can click the save button to save your work at that moment in time, and then come back and continue your draft another day.

Beat Writer's Block

Have trouble coming up with chapter book ideas? To find inspiration and ideas for topics, use our robust built-in inspire tab. Story starters, idea generators, and more are already built-in. You can even get a random image from the image library to use as the basis for your story. With the help of our chapter book maker, you won't ever experience writer's block again.


Our chapter book creator app works on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. This means you can start writing a story on a classroom computer. And then continue that same story on the go by visiting the creator on a mobile device. The Imagine Forest chapter book creator is just as powerful on desktop computers, as it is on mobile devices.

10,000+ Images To Use

Our built-in media library contains over 10,000+ images and illustrations to use in your books. And this media library is continuously growing over time! You can even request more images by contacting our team. More importantly, all images in our media library are public domain, meaning they can be used over and over again with no additional permission or attribution required.

Book Cover Creator

Our online chapter book creator comes with a built-in book cover creator, allowing you to use built-in stickers, text and images to create a personalised book cover. We have even included some book cover templates to inspire your book cover design. Let your imagination run wild with our powerful cover creator.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a chapter book?

  1. Select the 'Chapter Book' type on Imagine Forest.
  2. Create a cover using the cover creator.

Can I download a PDF of my book?

Yes. Once you have published your chapter book, you should see a 'Download PDF' option on the final confirmation page. You can also download a PDF by going to the published book's page. The download option is available on all account types and is 100% free.

Is it possible to upload my own images?

No, it is not currently possible to add your own photos or images. In the future, we might implement this feature. Our chapter book creator's goal is to direct and assist you as you develop a chapter book. It is a teaching tool for assisting novices in crafting strong stories. We offer a variety of built-in images as inspiration because of this. Since these pictures are in the public domain, we're free to utilise them on our website. The copyright of user-uploaded images is a major issue so for the time being, this function is not available on our site.

Can I use this chapter book creator for school projects?

Yes, of course, you can! Any book created on Imagine Forest can be used for educational and personal reasons with no extra permission needed. Both teachers and students can create as many chapter books as they like, print them out and even present them in classrooms or share them with their friends.

How long does it take to create a chapter book?

This depends on your idea. If you have your idea mapped out and a draft version already created, then publishing a chapter book should take no longer than a few hours on Imagine Forest. If you feel that it may take longer than you expected, then our story creator will automatically save your progress about every 2 minutes. You can also manually save your chapter book and continue another day on Imagine Forest.
