Comme des géants is a young independent publishing house dedicated to children's books. It is located in Varennes, Quebec. Comme des géants wishes to spark children's interest in literature, storytelling, and illustration so that the discovery of a book is something they'll want to repeat. Comme des géants' mission is to develop children's passion for books. The titles published by the house stand out for their narrative, literary, and graphic qualities. Even though fictional work is at the core of its publishing program, Comme des géants is open to varying types of illustrated books, ranging from comics to word books and non-fiction books.
Le Lièvre de Mars republishes out of print books and texts that were initially
published over the last six decades. The idea behind this project is to give
selected, classics or lesser-known works, a new life. Our mission is to preserve, reissue (or republish) and distribute works of children’s literature, from around the world, that have been acclaimed for their strong literary and artistic merit. In short, this is a content preservation project that involves selecting and republishing out-of-print works of children’s literature and illustrated books that have fallen by the wayside.
Founded by Nadine Robert, cofounder of publishing house Comme des géants, the idea grew out of her enthusiasm for past works of children’s literature and her desire to reintroduce them to young readers and their parents.
