Very happy to let you know that Wydawnictwo Widnokrąg publishing house in Poland has acquired the Polish rights to the first two titles in the hilarious Pete-series written by Timo Parvela and illustrated by Pasi Pitkänen.
The contracted titles are Pete’s Blog (Paten aikakirjat, Tammi 2014) and Pete’s Football Book (Paten jalkapallokirja, Tammi 2015). Lovely Iwona Kosmowska shall translate both books which are both due to be published in 2018.
Publisher Dorota Górska remarked: “We look for the boys’ heroes, because this group is underrepresented in children literature – as oppose to adult literature where the reverse is true. Statistically, boys read less so it is important that they could relate to the characters. We believe that Pete series would fit perfectly to that.” And we whole-heartedly agree!
