FISCHER Children’s and Young Adult Paperbacks

Paperbacks for young people have been part of S. Fischer’s offerings since the children’s imprint was launched in 1994.

Here, young readers can rediscover their favourite books from the multifaceted children’s and young adult lists, featuring, for instance, titles from the Tanya Stewner‘s Liliane Susewind series and Sheridan Winn‘s Die vier zauberhaften Schwestern (The Sprite Sisters). They can also find modern classics like Cornelia Funke‘s Hinter verzauberten Fenstern (Behind Enchanted Windows); leading entertainment for young women, such as the novels of Kiera Cass; and bestsellers like John Boyne‘s Der Junge im gestreiften Pyjama (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), a book that has been taught in schools for some time now.
