The deal grants the publishing house exclusive rights to the writer's 49 famous novels and short stories.

The publishing house will soon launch e-book versions of two titles Kính Vạn Hoa (Kaleidoscope) and Đảo Mộng Mơ (The Dreamlike Island).

Kính Vạn Hoa includes 54 parts featuring adventures of teenagers Quy, Long and Hanh, which were published in the mid 90s and quickly became a hit.

The work was adapted into a TV series in 2005, attracting millions of children and adult viewers.

Đảo Mộng Mơ, which was released in 2010, is about a dream of a 10-year-old boy named Tin who is lost on a desert island. The book sold more than 10,000 copies in the first weeks of its release.

The publishing house also reprinted Anh’s bestselling books since the 1990s, such as Trước Vòng Chung Kết (Before the Final), Thằng Quỷ Nhỏ (The Mischievous Boy), and Chú Bé Rắc Rối (The Trouble Boy). These books are still popular today.  

Duong Thanh Truyen, acting director of Trẻ Publishing House, said: “The Trẻ Publishing House has accompanied author Nguyen Nhat Anh for 30 years. And we continue our journey to bring his books to children and teenage readers across the country.”

 

Anh began writing in 1984 and is known for his simple style and accurate depiction of children’s minds.

His books like Cho Xin Một Vé Đi Về Tuổi Thơ (Give Me a Ticket Back to Childhood), Làm Bạn Với Bầu Trời (Being Friends with the Sky), and Tôi Là Bêtô (I Am Bêtô) are favourites of thousands of children and teenagers around the country.

Published in 2007, Cho Xin Một Vé Đi Về Tuổi Thơ, a story about an urban boy named Mùi, won the Southeast Asian Writers Award presented by the Thai royal family in 2010. The work has since been translated into Thai and published by Thai publisher Nanmee Books.

Many of Anh’s books have been adapted into movies, such as Hoa Vàng Trên Cỏ Xanh (Yellow Flowers on Green Grass), Cô Gái Đến Từ Hôm Qua (The Girl Comes from Yesterday) and Mắt Biếc (Blue Eyes),

The films are among the highest-grossing productions in the country’s movie industry. They have won several awards at local and international film festivals. VNS
