US Books in Eastern Europe

I was recently in Belgrade, Serbia and came upon five bookstores on the main pedestrian street. I went into each and every one, of course, and beelined for the children’s and YA area. Here are some photos of books you might recognize – except that they’re written in Serbian.

….And even the Mr. Men books!

I was really pleased to see our children’s literature represented in foreign bookstores. Kids abroad seem keenly interested in our culture and it shows on their bookstore shelves, Pretty cool, I’d say.
