This is so neat! A Thai publisher has purchased translation rights to Bears on Chairs. A bilingual edition is planned, with the book in both Thai and English. Can't wait to see it!
This follows translation rights sold to a German publisher and to a publisher in Finland who is publishing in four Scandinavian languages: Finnish, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
The bears have received a wonderful welcome by Japanese readers where BEARS ON CHAIRS was the 9th most favorite picture book during the year it was first published. Japanese companies have even produced plush bears, bears on teacher's smocks, on stationery and on many other items.
I love knowing the little bears are enjoyed by children in so many countries!
