Germany’s literature for young readers is loved around the world.

“Children's Books on Tour” is a thematic showcase of current children's and young adult literature from Germany. The tour stops at book fairs and other destinations abroad. The goal of the exhibition is to present the latest releases, encounter international audiences and create new business.

 

No other country sells as many foreign rights in children’s and young adult books as Germany, making it the world's leading exporter of the genre. Every publisher can present up to eight new releases each year. 15 publishers are joining the tour in 2021. Together, they present more than 50 titles, all collated in our Rights List.
