Our programm

Modern products with innovative features, in particularly high quality, are typical for the popularity of our cardboard books with famous series like „Hör mal rein“.

Our timeless and artistically designed picture books are classics for each children’s room.

Our children’s literature offers the right book for every child: first-time-readers to reading-pros will find stories with tension, action, fantasy and humour.

The Children’s activity book sector provides high quality from educationally valuable to playful-creative with stickers, riddles and colouring-sheets.

Books to excite somebody’s curiosity and bring joy are at home in the children’s non-fiction sector. They distinguish themselves through creative designs and thrilling subjects.
