SchubigerWe are deeply saddened by the loss of Jürg Schubiger, who died at the age of 77 in Zurich on 15th September 2014. His wonderful stories and poems have greatly enriched the publishing programme of Peter Hammer Verlag for many years.

Jürg Schubiger wrote both for children and adults and received numerous important awards for his books. His literary work for children was awarded with the Hans-Christian-Andersen Prize in 2008; the so-called ‘Nobel Prize for Children’s Literature’.
