 "Mežonīgie pīrāgi" or "Die wilden Piroggenpiraten", the multi-talented Maris Putnins’ popular adventure tale, has just been nominated for Germany’s Deutscher Jungen Literaturpreis 2013 in the Kinderbuch category.

Translated from the Latvian by Matthias Knoll, the German version, published by "S.Fischer Verlage", had its presentational party at the Leipzig Book Fair one year ago in March.

Deutscher Jungen Literaturpreis, honouring outstanding literature for children and young adults, is a tradition since 1956.
