the white ravens 2012

We are so pleased to announce that The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen and Thomas Aquinas Maguire is one of the titles for The White Ravens 2012, an annual selection of outstanding international books for children and young adults, which is presented at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. The books for this year's exhibition, 250 titles from more than 40 countries, have been selected from the thousands of books that our library received as review copies from publishers, authors, illustrators, and organisations from all over the world within the last year.

The Festival is named for the “White Ravens” of the International Youth Library, which in specialists’ circles stand for extraordinary and innovative books for children and adolescents. The Library publishes an annual international book review catalogue titled “White Ravens”. The “White Ravens” selected for inclusion in the catalogue all inspire and provoke, set new trends, and are of the highest quality in terms of language, content, and artistry.
