In the press release Judy Newman, Senior Vice President and Director of Scholastic Book Clubs said, “The secret of Wilhelm’s books has always been his ability to write about and illustrate very lovable characters which appeal to children of all ages. His titles are hugely popular and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate this monumental book sales with him.”

Although SCHOLASTIC is Hans Wilhelm’s main publishing house he has several other publishers who are releasing and selling his books here in America and all over the world. Today Hans Wilhelm is traveling extensively and meeting many of his readers in Europe, Asia and Africa during his lectures and workshops.
