For her NorthSouth debut Julie Völk chose an unusual and unfashionable method called cyanotype is an old photographic technique whereby paper is first treated with a light-sensitive, ferrous solution before being covered by cutout elements and then exposed. The results are that the unexposed surfaces reveal negative elements set off against a deep, intense blue background where light has come into contact with the paper. Julie Völk’s style is defined by precise lines and an atmospheric use of color. She loves to mix real and surreal elements with a fine sense of the delicate and the powerful, the light and the dark. .

“Cyanotype has something calming yet precise about it. It helps you to focus on what is most vital.” Julie Völk

Girl to the Power 


Augusta Ada Byron, better known as Ada Lovelace, was a child with a thirst for knowledge. She read anything and everything she could get her hands on in her father’s library, the sensational poet Lord Byron. But above all else she loved solving the mathematical puzzles set by her teacher, inventor of the ubiquitous number-crunching machine, Charles Babbage. And thus her course was set, to become a pioneer in her field and one of the most important women of science. Zoë Tucker has condensed the adventurous life of Ada Lovelace into a few pointed episodes. Rachel Katstaller has added a humorous Victorian backdrop. The whole is an ideal introduction for picture book readers to the life of an inspirational woman who swam against the stream.

Exceptional debut Powerful subject matter, women in science Introducing children to a role model whose legacy lives on

The Long Way When a young child finds her great-great-grandfather Wilhelm’s journal detailing his voyage across the Atlantic as an emigrant sailing from Bremerhaven, Germany, to America in 1872, she is transported back in time. The journal entries capture young Wilhelm’s hopes of escaping poverty, the adventure and poignancy of leaving behind all that is familiar, the wonders of life on the open sea, the work of the sailors, the daily struggles of sleeping in steerage, sea sickness, insect infestations, and boredom, but also the children’s games and sense of community on board. And finally, the big day comes as the Columbia reaches the port of New York! Sidebar facts throughout offer insights about navigational tools, seamen’s knots, sea creatures, and more in this historical picture book about the great age of emigration and life aboard a sailing ship.

Anke Bär studied Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Practice in Hildesheim, Germany. Through a project at the German Emigration Center in Bremerhaven she came into contact with the topic of historical emigration overseas. Today she works as a freelance author and illustrator in Bremen, Germany.

“Wilhelm’s experiences and the many sketches paint a vivid picture of what it means to emigrate.”

NorthSouth Books is happy to bring this beautiful edition of The Star Child back into print! There was once a young girl whose only possessions were the clothes on her back and a piece of bread some kind soul had given to her. But even these few things meant much to others less fortunate than herself; and in selfless love, the girl gave away the little that she had. In this beautiful Grimm fable, it is truly more blessed to give than to receive.

“The falling stars that become a shower of golden coins and the mist and star-woven garments rewarding her are surely a satisfying conclusion to this lesser-known tale.” School Library Journal on Star Child

Hot Diggity Dogs! Every child wants a dog at some point. Here’s the story of a little girl who figures out how to get what she wants! Lisa loves dogs and asks “twenty-one times a day” for a pet of her own. Despite the pleas, her parents respond: “Our apartment is too small for a dog.” She tries different methods of persuasion, but neither being “good as gold” nor “truly terrible” changes the verdict. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she posts a sign in the park: “Wanted: Dog to Borrow.” Soon an elderly man hires Lisa to walk his dachshund. Muted watercolor illustrations show the red-haired girl playing with Rollo while her wooden toy dalmatian sits on a nearby bench awaiting her return.

Helga Bansch was born in Leoben, Austria. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a teacher in primary schools and made marionettes for puppet theatres.

Share some Kristy Koth, how does translating for bilingual books differ from regular translation work? Usually when translating you’re free to adapt by fleshing something out or eliminating superfluous text. The result inevitably differs from the original. But as soon as two languages appear together you can’t help looking for “mistakes.” So we try to keep our translations very close to the original while ensuring that both versions feel natural. It’s a fine balancing act. Who are your books aimed at? Children in bilingual households whose parents speak different languages. Children whose native language is not the local language, because if their first language stagnates it can be difficult gaining competence in a new language. Monolingual children whose parents want a fun way to introduce them to a new language. Why start with The Rainbow Fish? All over the world, children love this story with its universal message that sharing makes you feel good. It is exactly the kind of story and message that we look for and that works well bilingually.

Dr. Kristy Koth, publisher and CEO of bi:libri, was born and raised in Washington State and holds a PhD in French from Northwestern. She spent time in Mexico, France, Germany, and Japan, studying the languages and teaching English. In 2007 she joined bi:libri, where she combines her knowledge of language learning with a passion for children’s literature. Kristy lives in Munich, Germany, with her family.

A Classic Swedish series with new translations

“ Strong characters, a timeless story, and plenty of droll humor. The engaging text reads aloud well while amusing adults and children alike.”

Best of the Backlist


Enchanting and intriguing.

“Gugger and Röthlisberger’s sumptuous illustrations, evocative of the work of


Lisbeth Zwerger, are infused with the sort of whimsical detail that makes for the best fantasy ambiance.” Kirkus Reviews

A real fairy tale or a tale of real fairies?

“Whimsical pencil illustrations, rendered in simple lines, patterns, and a somber palette of grays, blues, and tans, transport the enigmatic text to the fringe of fairyland . . . an intriguing, enchantingly rendered real fairy tale.” Kirkus Reviews

Celebrating 500 years of Leonardo da Vinci

“ Action-packed panels, diagrams of Chilly’s inventions, and nods to Leonardo da Vinci make this a goodhearted embrace of trial and error and a celebration of failure as a learning experience.”

In Other Words . . .   “The text and images combine in surreal fashion what is actually happening with what the son is feeling/imagining—an effective strategy to maximize impact while avoiding displays of physical contact . . . its powerful saga signaling to hurting readers that they are not alone—and that asking for help can bring relief.”  Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“Angryman is unlike any picture book I’ve seen before.” Julie Danielson, Kirkus Reviews
