Highlights from the International Youth Library's annual recommendation list

Every year, the internationally recognised recommendation list \"The White Ravens\" presents outstanding new releases of the international children's and youth book production. 200 titles in around 40 languages and from more than 50 countries are selected annually by the children’s literature experts of the International Youth Library and featured in this annotated English-language catalogue. The \"White Ravens\" catalogue – a treasure trove for literary discoveries – serves as a compass through the vast children's book market for publishers, libraries, literary festivals, international bookstores and agencies, as well as anyone interested in international children's books and is.

At the Frankfurt Book Fair, the IYL team will present some books from \"The White Ravens 2023\" list, including their personal favourites. The event has been a fixture in the events calendar of the Frankfurt Book Fair for several years.

An event in cooperation with the Frankfurt Book Fair.

The event is held in English.
