An international successful series on personal growing
More than 10 years have passed since we launched the first title of the “Victory” series and it has become an international successful series, translated into 16 languages, and keeps spreading worldwide with every new title.
In this collection of short stories on personal growing, each title tackles a key issue for this age group in a very funny and easy-going way: selfishness, sincerity, personal hygiene, good manners, nightmares, violence, swearing, consumerism or hyperconnectivity. Simple and easy to understand, texts come with amazing illustrations by Cristina Losantos to stimulate the imagination.
Further to the publication 11th title Good Morning, Sleepyhead! this fall, we’ll be relaunching Go Away, Nightmares!
A story to overcome the fear of the dark
John is a quiet and cheerful boy during the day, but when night falls he is assailed by all kinds of fear. From his bed, he sees threatening shadows and terrifying creatures that vanish when his parents turn on the light.
His grandmother will teach him to conquer his fear.
Because… whoever said that darkness couldn’t be fun?
