Products and Services

A wide range of children's books - from toddlers to young adult. We achieve great success on the market with our series in the Middle Grade range (8-12 years).
Barbara Rose: Whisperworld: Departure for the Land of the Animal Whisperers (vol. 1)

Coco, Chuck, Amy, Mohit, and Paul are called. They're allowed to go to Whisperworld, where they roam through the jungle alone, sleep in trees, and each day learn something new about nature and the animals around them. And where they impatiently wait to see who is the first to be chosen to protect an endangered species – as its animal whisperer.

Silke Schellhammer: School of Talents: First Lesson: Devilish Loud! (vol. 1)

Math grades don't count in the School of Talents, and (fortunately!) there's nothing like normal classes. Here, all students possess special capabilities: some are shape-shifters, some understand what animals say, and others can command water. Chaos is inevitable...  
Every volume contains riddles to solve and dark secrets to discover.

Sabrina J. Kirschner: The Book of (Un) Secret Wishes: On Safari (vol. 1)

Noah finds a strange book – full of (un) secret wishes. And a message: grant Malee's wish and then you'll get a wish, too! But easier said than done, because Malee wishes for a safari. But Noah doesn't live in Africa! How's he supposed to manage it without magic? Like the author's first series, this new one is also perfect for kids weak in reading: easy sentences, short chapters and lots of pictures maintain interest. Reading becomes fun!
