Silberfisch beim Hörbuch Hamburg Verlag

The Publishing House and its History

Children’s and young adult audiobook publisher ‘Silberfisch’ (Silver Fish) was founded in 2007 under the Hörbuch Hamburg umbrella, along the banks of the Elbe. Thanks to a careful selection of materials and a consistently high level of quality productions the publisher has been very successful from the start.


Every year, Silberfisch releases about 120 titles—from classic narration to audio drama. The program embraces a good mix of entertainment, high quality literature, and exciting nonfiction for all age groups.

Alongside classics by Michael Ende, Judith Kerr, Max Kruse and Otfried Preußler one can find contemporary children’s and young adult audiobooks by Isabel Abedi, Nina Blazon, Julia Dippel, Marc-Uwe Kling, Stephenie Meyer, Martin Muser, Andreas Steinhöfel, Oliver Scherz, Saša Stanišić, Uwe Timm, and Juli Zeh.

Strong characters and series, like ‘Die Schule der magischen Tiere’ (The School of Magic Animals), ‘Conni’, ‘Der kleine Rabe Socke’ (Sock the Crow), ‘Die kleine Hummel Bommel‘ (Bobbles, the Little Bumblebee), ‘Das magische Baumhaus’ (Magic Tree House), ‘Bitte nicht öffnen’ (Please Do not Open), ‘Der kleine Siebenschläfer’ (Fat Little Dormouse) and ‘Wie man 13 wird’ (How to turn 13) complete the program.
