With more than 200 translated European children's books, European Union National Institutes for Culture Thailand and the European Union, together with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, has recently launched the "EUNIC-Bibliobus", a mobile library that will go on tour for children around the city. 

From fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, popular fictional characters such as Winnie-the-Pooh and Pinocchio, to one of the best-known children's literary works The Little Prince, this campaign joins Bangkok as this year's World Book Capital to not only bring books to children but also to introduce them to other countries and cultures. The bus currently holds about 600 copies of more than 200 titles contributed by 13 EU member countries and the EU delegation to Thailand.

"This is a project that has been initiated by several European countries," Goethe-Institut director Dr Norbert Spitz said.
