Welcome to PW’s third special report on the Chinese children’s book market. Here, we talk with eight Chinese publishers about the challenges, opportunities, and the future of the industry, and check out the market’s blooming interest in books on plants. We also look at the titles that inspire four of the publishers, and chat with Bai Bing (of Jieli Publishing House) on his writings, as well as with Zhang Mingzhou (of the International Board on Books for Young People) about his organization’s role in China. Our coverage also includes listings of new original titles that these 8 publishers are bringing to the upcoming Bologna Book Fair.
