ELKOST Intl. literary agency handles world translation rights in ALL WORKS by Stanislav Vostokov
Stanislav Vostokov (b.1975) is a Russian author of books for children and YA.
Since 1998, he has published more than twenty books ranging from poetry and short stories to fairy tales and fantasy and biography. The main themes of his work are nature and animals.
Since his very young years, Vostokov has always loved reading stories about animals. After graduating from the art college, he has spent several years working as an activist for protection of endangered animals in Cambodia (1994-95, 1997, and 1999), which gave his later writings a unique view of the animal world.
Vostokov’s books won multiple national awards, but also internationally he has been notoriously acknowledged. His Do Not Feed And Do Not Tease (Samokat, 2011) was featured in the The White Ravens Catalog in 2011, and so were Frosia Korovina (Clever, 2014) in 2015 and Where Did The Mountain Go (Mellik-Pashaev 2021) in 2021.
His The Winter Door (Samokat, 2011) was granted the IBBY Honorary Diploma in 2014. In 2019, Frosia Korovina was a finalist for Deutscher Jugendliteratur Preis.
His titles have been translated into German, Chinese, Farsi, Bengali, Arabic and Finnish.
