The German edition of Candy, published by Loewe, will be out in hardcover on October 9th, illustrated by Max Meinzold and translated by Ulrike Köbele. The full German title is “Geheimagentin Candy und die Schokoladen-Mafia” – which translates as Secret Agent Candy and the Chocolate Mafia!
Seriously, how cool is that? I love Max’s cover, and the whole thing has, to me, definite Michael Ende / Momo vibes (I’m a huge Ende fan). Loweve have been incredibly enthusiastic about the novel – I can’t wait for it to hit the shelves in Germany. You can pre-order it on Amazon Germany here.
Candy is out in the UK next month (pre-order on Amazon here), and in France, Italy, the Czech Republic, Poland and Romania not long after. I’ll post new covers when they become available!
Meanwhile, here is the German cover in all its glory!
