'Books in translation help us all to reach beyond our own language and culture,' writes David Almond, yet until recently few foreign children’s books were translated into English. In this Riveting Reads publication our two renowned editors, Joy Court and Daniel Hahn, go some way to illuminate the wealth of material now coming from all corners of the world. They provide a superb selection of book reviews for the Under 8s through to the 14+ age ranges - titles that really should be on our library shelves. With pithy and illuminating annotations covering a wealth of topics and genres, A World of Books in Translation is an excellent guide that reflects the 90% of the world that does not speak English as its first language.
