Bleeker to appear in German newspaper

Jonathan Mahood’s Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog will begin appearing in Germany’s Die Zeit weekly newspaper for a 12 week run on their kid’ page. Die Zeit has a circulation of about 500,000 and an estimated readership of 2 million. Jonathan writes on his blog that “editors chose Bleeker because it appealed to both children and their adult readers.”

Hey, Euer Deutsch ist ja klasse!
Congrats to Jonathan – Die Zeit is highly esteemed in Germany and the rest of Europe.
I’m sure the editors will do well with translation. Most Germans can read and speak English, and Zeit-readers for sure can do both.
