Hachette Livre are one of France's leading publishers of fiction for children, and the market leaders for young adults.
Black Moon, the YA imprint, was launched in 2005 with a certain novel about a teenage girl who falls in love with a vampire... Since then the list has exploded: Stephenie Meyer, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, L J Smith, Maggie Stiefvater, Elizabeth Chandler, Lauren Oliver and Meg Rosoff... These are just a few of the names associated with this exciting, edgy list.
Hachette also publish quality series for younger readers, with stellar authors such as Anthony Horowitz, Meg Cabot, Michele Paver, Jacqueline Wilson and Sophia Bennett all on the list. And the 150 year old Bibliotheques Rose and Verte host many bestselling series, from Enid Blyton classics to novelisations of the latest TV series, as well as publishing series such as BEAST QUEST and MAGIC BALLERINA.
