Kids and Young Adults want to read books by Loewe for over 150 years.
As the market leader for Early Reading, Loewe is mostly renowned for the concept Loewe´s Lions which has companied Children for generations. Stories about the most favorite topics in 4 different levels, written by best-selling authors like Cornelia Funke, for readers at the age of 5 to 9 years are popular for school beginners all over the world.
Loewe Verlag was founded in 1863 by Ferdinand Loewe. In 1965, Volker Gondrom took over the business. It was under his leadership that Loewe Verlag acquired its current shape, which has allowed it to become one of the largest and most successful publishers of books for children and young people in the German-speaking area. Volker's son Christoph Gondrom joined the company in April 2012 as the third generation of the Gondrom family in the business. Books for young people have also been successfully developed by Loewe: Ursula Poznanski’s thriller Erebos was awarded the German Youth Literature Prize, and has been translated into more than 34 languages.
