Welcome to the NordSüd Verlag’s Rights and Licensing Department! Best known for lovable characters like The Rainbow Fish and Lars, The Little Polar Bear, we have plenty more to discover. Such as Pauli the fun-loving bunny, Lindbergh, the adventurous mouse or Boris, the resourceful tomcat.

We also have an extensive front- and backlist of artistically illustrated fairy tales, picture books with quirky characters and big and small adventures. Just for you.
