The volume explores the cultural transfer in German Children's and Young Adult Literature with Central, Southeastern and Eastern Europe. So far, this process has received little attention. The volume therefore aims to provide insight into the complex circulation of literature on the book market and into the linguistic, discursive or ideological adaptation of the texts for children und young adults. In detail, it charts the processual logic of both selection and translation, the role of multilingual literary ambassadors and the aspects of illustration practice. The thorough analysis of cultural intersections and asymmetries allows conclusions about the popularity of certain works, the dynamics of their reception, and, above all, the specificity of literary relations.
