Makedonika Litera has released ten new titles by Chinese authors as part of a new series of children’s books.

The Best of Chinese Children’s Literature series is a collaboration between the Macedonian publisher and Dolphin Books from China.

The project is based on the authors’ own selections of their best work, including fairy tales, fables, short stories, or novellas for young readers.

Eight of the ten books—including The Secret of Sweet Strawberries by Tang Sulan; The Fragrant Bird by Jin Bo; Legend of Panda by Sun Youjun and The Persian Cat Called Peck by Gao Hongbo—were written for children aged 7-12.

My Cousin Is Coming by Qin Wenjun and The Taste of the Sun by Zhang Zhilu were written for teenage readers.

Established in 1986, Dolphin Books is a Chinese press specializing in the publication of children’s literature as well as social science and reference books.

Makedonika Litera, founded in 2010, has an average output of 30 to 40 titles per year, focusing on Macedonian culture and heritage, as well as foreign works of high cultural value.
