O is for Outside In
“the organisation dedicated to promoting and exploring world literature and children’s books in translation.”
I have found this website of enormous help in compiling and researching this A-Z, and the nice people there provide all kinds of ways to discover new books. You can search for a specific author or title, browse by age range or choose a country from an interactive map of the world. Or you can have a look at their book of the week. Not all the books are translations, incidentally – some are written in English by international authors.
There is also information on their work bringing international books to children in the UK and a whole range of schemes and events supporting translated children’s literature: it really is a worthwhile site to check out!
Meanwhile, here’s a range of translated picture books beginning with ‘O’ that I found there – follow the links below the images to read their reviews:
