Word count guidlines for specific publishers

I'm writing a middle grade book, and I'm trying to do some research on different publishers and their word count guidelines. I know generally word count for middle grade can range from 20,000 to 50,000, but I'm looking for more specific information. If anyone knows more detailed information about a certain publisher like the minimum word count they except or what word counts they look for and which they stay away from please let me know.

In general, there are two cases: (1) there are word count guidelines, and these are listed explicitly on the publisher's website, or (2) there are no explicit word count guidelines, but the publishers would keep in mind the audience: way too long, way too short? For that, you should look at the lengths of other books which have the same target audience as yours.
