Ojos curiosos ENTRELIBROS
LOGO ENTRELIBROS
LOGO abuenpaso

SPAIN

A buen paso represents a slightly accelerated walk; there is so much to see, know and discover in this world that, driven by curiosity, we cannot stop walking. Without running, of course, one would miss everything, and it is that the actual speed of going at a good pace is also relative: to the setting, the environment, and the speed of thought that needs spaces of silence to take shape.  


For this reason, the books of A buen paso are fun. They tell kind and unexpected stories, play with language, and invite their readers to play while simultaneously asking questions and discovering the world. In these books, the protagonists are people, nature, and the force of life.


We like to think that the books of A buen paso contribute to creating free thinkers, curious and courageous people.

LOGO Ediciones Ekare

SPAIN

The word "ekaré" was taken from the language of the Pemón ethnic group inhabiting the southeast of Venezuela. It means a new or true narrative and, in a broader context, simply a story or tale.

Ediciones Ekaré was created in 1978, and its primary objective, to produce high-quality books, is directly related to the experience in public and school libraries of the Banco del Libro. Nowadays, Ekaré books reach many countries, but the initial intention remains to publish meaningful books by Latin American authors from diverse parts of the world.


During those years, the editorial offering of illustrated books for children in Latin America was scarce. Ekaré was the first independent publishing project in the region that specialized in publishing for children. The commitment was to create quality books with stories, characters, and landscapes from the Latin American environment and translations of renowned authors from the rest of the world that would serve as a window to other cultures.

LOGO takatuka

SPAIN

Takatuka books are characterized by playing with humor, fantasy, and various plots to create stories and images that leave little ones and young readers with many smiles, some questions, reflections, and above all, a desire to keep reading.


At Takatuka, all topics fit, from the everyday experiences or concerns of the youngest to situations related to their environment or the world around them. That's why we try to find childlike characters close to their way of being, their natural curiosity and rebellion, and their contradictions, avoiding idealized figures or roles foreign to their reality. Starting from the premise that, generally, there are no topics exclusively for children or exclusively for adults, but different ways of addressing them, we want to make reading a moment to enhance the taste for a good book and the desire to learn about and enjoy the world in which they must grow as free and autonomous individuals.


In our catalog, you will find board books, picture books, comics, informational books, and novels for early and advanced readers aimed at a child or young audience.

thule Ediciones

SPAIN

In the 4th century BC, Pitheus of Massalia set sail westwards, beyond the pillars of Heracles, to follow the route of amber and tin. His journey took him to the Northern Seas, to the island of Thule, where the sea was no longer navigable as it turned into ice. Back then, very few historians and geographers believed Pitheus' story and called him a liar.

However, the name Thule and the idea of the last island at the edge of the world took root in the collective imagination and quickly became a literary myth, so much so that Virgilio and Tasso, among others, spoke about Thule.

Thule Ediciones also aims to be the last island in the confines of the publishing world. It wants to be a publisher that explores new literary paths, new formats, and editing materials. A publisher that investigates the possibilities that design offers as an ideal complement to interpret and revalue the text.

In short, it is a publishing house that moves into the space where the real world gives way to the imagined and fantastic world.

LOGO Zorro Rojo

SPAIN

Since its foundation in Barcelona in 2004, Libros del Zorro Rojo has established itself as an internationally renowned publishing house specializing in illustrated books for readers of all ages.


For our publishing house, illustrating means creating work through the confluence of two languages: literature and fine arts. Word and image flourish in the fertile ground that links them: the art of editing. Our works do not present beauty as a mere decorative element but rather as a means for the reflective development of readers.


The fox is a bold and irreverent animal. This audacity to innovate, but also to challenge, is indispensable in our approach to this profession. We have attempted to break away from some of the most widespread clichés of picture books by continuously questioning the limits of a living genre. We seek well-written stories that move readers, revealing characters, controversial themes, and original, distinctive, and high-quality graphic proposals that create books capable of opening new horizons for new readers.
