A Selection of International Children's and Youth Literature

The annually published catalogue "The White Ravens" is the most important continued publication of the International Youth Library. It is published each autumn to be presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair. All compiled titles are introduced at the Book Fair in Bologna the following year.
