Certainly German kids love also (Paid link) Harry Potter and there are already lots of books about witches and wizards on the market but here you will find some other very famous children's books from German (or in Germany living) authors. One who is clearly comparable with Joanne Rowling is Cornelia Funke. Her books are known worldwide and children love to read these fantastic stories like:

Heinrich Hoffmann

Erich Kästner

Unfortunately, most of his wonderful books are out of stock at amazon.

Ende, Michael
