For some years now, children’s literature has been receiving increasing attention and support from the book industry. Even so, it is still often underestimated as an art. According to conventional wisdom, writing and translating children’s books is easy. Is that really true or are appearances deceptive? What are the challenges of writing, translating and publishing this material? What literature is suitable for children? What form should it take in terms of language and narration? What is the relationship between text and image? How serious can it venture to be? What is it meant to achieve? These questions will be discussed with Ibtisam Barakat, Suleman Taufiq and Madjid Mohit.
