KompasGuide Publishing House discovers talented authors, creating a collection of wonderfully designed award-winning books. Since its establishment in 2009 KompasGuide has brought many exceptional children’s and young adults’ book projects to the Russian market. We like to publish those books that speak about the most complicated subjects in an honest and interesting way. Our books will help young readers learn about the life of their peers in different parts of the world. We strongly believe that a pen is stronger than a sword; therefore, we hope that our books can help to destroy the walls of misunderstanding.

Our first book was published in November 2009. We have since published more than 170 titles.

Our authors include Michael Ende, Wolf Erlbruch, Christine Nöstlinger, Ulf Stark, Stefan

Casta, Jutta Bauer, Andreas Steinhöfel, Beate Teresa Hanika, Ketil Bjørnstad, Timothée de Fombelle, Bernard Friot, and many others.
