About Elsewhere Editions
Elsewhere Editions is a children’s imprint from Archipelago Books, devoted to translating imaginative picture books from around the world. We hope that these titles will enrich children’s imaginations and cultivate curiosity about other cultures, as well as delight with their humor, art, and playful spirit.
Elsewhere Editions has been greeted with open arms by book critics, librarians, and readers of all ages. So far, we’ve released picture books from Estonia, China, Finland, Brazil, France, Norway, the Netherlands, and soon from Iran, Argentina, Uruguay, Switzerland, and elsewhere.. You Can’t be Too Careful! by Hans Christian Andersen Award recipient Roger Mello, translated from the Portuguese by Daniel Hahn, was a winner of the 2018 Batchelder Award; Feather by Cao Wenxuan, with illustrations by Roger Mello, and translated from the Chinese by Chloe Garcia Roberts, was deemed “profound” by the New York Times Book Review, each page an “evocative surprise.” My Valley by Claude Ponti, one of France’s most celebrated children’s writers, was named one of the Best Picture Books of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews, and My Little One, by Germano Zullo and Hans Christian Andersen-winning illustrator Albertine, won the Bologna Ragazzi Award in 2016.
