COMPANHIA DAS LETRAS is one of the largest publishing groups in Brazil with 18 imprints publishing an average of 45 new titles per month, adding to an active catalogue of some 5000 titles. COMPANHIAS DAS LETRINHAS is the most prestigious children’s book publishing house in the in Brazilian market. This imprint was established in 1992 to offer books in tune with children’s sensibility, capable of stimulating reasoning, creativity and an early interest in books.
In Companhia das Letrinhas we have successfully published international authors such as Beatrix Potter, Astrid Lindgren, Lemony Snicket, Wolf Erlbruch, and Brazilian authors such as Ana Maria Machado (classic and well-known abroad), Roger Mello (winner of Hans Christian Andersen Prize in 2014), Vinicius de Moraes (classic poetry for children), Blandina Franco and José Carlos Lollo (best-selling authors), Adriana Carranca (debut author and already a best-seller) and Renato Moriconi (contemporary author and illustrator, winner of Jabuti Prize).
Amongst our main goals is encouraging reading for younger audiences, which we consider to be a very important initiative in our market. With that in mind we have recently developed a special book club for our youngest readers, in which for a monthly subscription, members receive two of our greatest titles and exclusive promotional material every month. This has been an innovating strategy to promote our titles and strengthen our imprint.
