Südpol Verlag

The Publishing Company and Its History

Suedpol is an independent publisher of children’s books and books for young adults, located in Grevenbroich – in the heart of the Rhineland between Cologne and Duesseldorf. Since 2011 we publish 14-16 novelties every year and offer an animating, exciting and imaginative program. Our focus lies on stories beyond the world of glitter-fairies, topmodels and knights.


Our intention is to motivate and support the enjoyment of reading. We publish books that inspire, entrain, surprise and especially: entertain without being superficial. A palm tree at the South Pole – our logo – is pathbreaking: every book, every story contains surprises and it’s worth changing the point of view sometimes.
We want to pay attention to nowadays different situations in which children grow up: single parents, different cultural backgrounds, patchwork families or families with two mums or two dads. That’s why we publish mainly German-speaking authors.

A focus is on the novice readers, because the earlier the desire to read is stimulated and promoted, the better the future reading skills.
Nature is another issue of importance: „Die Grünen Piraten“ want to create interest in nature and environment by enthralling stories, that could happen in every town.
