Erebos Wins German Children's Literature Prize!

We have some happy news from Frankfurt: the young adult novel Erebos has won a prestigious German award. Here's what Annick's associate publisher Colleen MacMillan had to say about it:
EREBOS, by Ursula Poznanski, won the most prestigious German children's prize at the Frankfurt book fair on Friday night--the Jugendliteraturpreis, which is awarded based on the number of votes from young readers across Germany. Annick Press purchased North American English-language rights for the title, which originated with Loewe Verlag. Annick is proud to be the publisher of EREBOS, which will be released in early February, 2012. Watch for more exciting developments around this title.
