Estonian Children's Literature Recognized at Frankfurt Book Fair
"Lift" ("Elevator") by Kätlin Vainola and "Kuidas meil asjad käivad" ("How things work in our family") by Anti Saar have been included in the prestigious White Ravens 2014 catalogue of children's books, compiled by the International Youth Library in Munich, Germany.
The White Ravens Catalog, announced during the annual Frankfurt Book Fair, includes 200 new children's books from over 50 countries and in 30 languages. The catalogue has helped sell translation rights of other books in Estonian in the past.
"When your book receives recognition or a prize it feels like the book has a birthday," said Kätlin Vainola, "Being in the White Ravens list feels like a birthday and Christmas together."
The chosen books will also be exhibited in the Bologna Children's Book Fair 2015 in Italy.
