The aim of this doctoral dissertation is to approach German-speaking Children’s literature books production in the Brazilian publishing market context, pointing out, by means of data systematization and interpretation, the developments of that production throughout the history of books in Brazil. Its premise is that German titles aimed at the Brazilian public contribute towards the making up of our literary system in representing a considerable share of works that reach the reader, either through translations or adapted translations. The research made possible not only to outline a repertoire of authors and works, and the different conditions which determine their publication, but also to verify the particularities of the books in circulation. In many cases, several of these books are legitimated by German Criticism, meeting the needs of the Brazilian publishing market and the Brazilian Children’s literature trends. The results obtained also demonstrate the enduring of the production in spite of political issues, such as the reaction against German community and culture during the World War I and World War II periods.
