Ein Entlein kann so nützlich sein (the German edition of Tener un patito…) is nominated for Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (the German Children’s Literature Award) in the category for picturebooks. Since they are our neighbours at the Frankfurt Book Fair, it’s impossible not to notice Isol’s books if passing by our corner of the fair. The winners are announced later today.
During ALMA’s programme at the fair yesterday, not only the candidates for the 2014 award were presented. A presentation of Isol’s work was made, and Larry Lempert and Helen Sigeland also talked about the working year of ALMA. Moderator for the whole thing was actress Anna Thalbach.
