Sant Jordi: A great day for Combel books!
Two titles on the TOP 5 bestsellers Catalan children’s books list on World Book Day!
Last Saturday, more than 300 books and roses stalls were set up again in Barcelona. Thousands took to the streets to celebrate Sant Jordi and look for new books. What a massive party!
As you know, in Catalonia we celebrate Sant Jordi by exchanging roses and books with our loved ones. It’s our Valentine’s feast and also World Book Day.
To round off the day, this year children had their say and two Combel titles made it to the top 5.

Good news for young readers: Martí & Salomó are planning the next title for publication in February 2023.
Garfunkel Live! , the 7th “Bitmax & Co” title
