Welcome to TWINKLE BOOKS, a foreign rights agency specialized in children's books translations licenses.
And also but not only:
A place where foreign books for children are nursed with care and passion before they take off for their new adventure in one of Czech and Slovak publishing houses.
Twinkle Books Agency✔️ the first Czech literary agency specialised in foreign rights just for children's literature
Twinkle Books Agency is the agency based in the Czech Republic that focuses on representing children's books from all around the world and selling their translation rights to Czech and Slovak publishers.
The agency was founded by Tereza Parizkova, a screenwriter, a children's books writer, and a translator. Tereza used to work for one of the biggest publishing houses in the Czech Republic, taking care of its School Book Club and helping to pick the new translation titles for children.
Tereza also sailed the world on cruise ships where she worked with children and had the best time during the story times, reading and observing the open ocean. She worked with children nearly all her life and she keeps their enthusiasm and passion for things (or she has never allowed herself to lose it).
She would love to hear from you. Oh, and one more thing - hope you love children's books too!
