Welcome to the 2020 report on the Chinese children’s book market. Now in its fourth issue, this report continues to track the country’s booming children’s book segment while sharing insights and comments from eight Chinese publishers on the challenges, opportunities, and the future of their industry. We take a quick look at how tech tools were deployed when bookstores were closed and book events cancelled during the country’s lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We also chat with Han Christian Andersen Award winner Igor Oleinikov on illustrating children’s books and uncover a unique challenge in translating baby books in Chinese. Next, we delve into the fantasy genre and find out what’s hot and working in this market. Our coverage also includes listings of new original titles from these eight publishers.
