Pixi-Books (Pixi-Bücher) is a popular series of children's books published in Germany by Carlsen Verlag. The series began in 1954, and now has the same status in Germany that Western Publishing's "Little Golden Books" have in America -- a familiar, well-loved format for storybooks. Each book is numbered, and the series now runs to well over 1,600 books. Pixi-Books measure 10x10 centimeters. The books are produced in sets of eight, but are sold separately.
