Two Children’s Authors Launch Publishing Company in Brazil

By Maria Fernanda Rodrigues

BRAZIL: Márcia Leite published her first book in 1986. Leonardo Chianca published her first in 1992. And they didn’t stop: since then, each has written at least 30 books for children, done some work in publishing and, secretly, dreamed of having their own publishing house. In September, the couple launched Pulo do Gato, which will publish children’s literature, as well as books related to promote reading for parents, teachers, and librarians.

The first book on their list is O direito de ler e de escrever [Derecho de leer y escribir] by Silvia Castrillón, president at Asolectura, the Colombian Association for Reading and Writing and one of the most important researchers on libraries in Latin America. The second is Como ensinar seus pais a gostarem de livros para crianças [Comment apprendre à ses parents à aimer les livres pour enfants?] by Alain Serres and Bruno Heitz.

Pulo do Gato is now working on another 13 books that will be sent to bookstores throughout 2011 and 2012, many of them in translation.

The website is under construction (editorapulodogato.com.br), but you can also reach the publishers by calling +55 11 2503-1438 or via Facebook.
