Alma Littera is Lithuania’s leading publisher. For more than 20 years, it has pursued its mission of promoting both the need for, and the pleasure of, gaining knowledge through reading. Alma Littera publishes books for adults, children and teenagers along with educational and teaching books, and the best and most popular works by authors from Lithuania and all over the world. Alma Littera cooperates with publishers and copyright agencies in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Israel, US, Latvia, Estonia, Russia and many other countries.
“Kake Make” is a fictional character which first appeared in the children’s’ picture book “The Kake Make and the Elf of Mess” published by Alma Littera in 2010. This creative, inventive, joyful and quirky character soon won over children hearts – and those of the children literature critics too. In 2010 IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) made it their book of the year for younger audiences.
As Kake Make’s popularity grew with every new book, she rapidly found her way into action books, encyclopaedias and toy books of different sizes – currently over 30 publications. Later more branded products were created in addition to the books, including stickers, puzzles, and birthday party products – and now the Kake Make brand can be found on merchandise ranging from food and drinks to hygiene, textile products and office supplies. Since Autumn 2014, two Kake Make plays have been staged by the Lithuanian National Youth Theatre.
Kake Make is not only popular in Lithuania – other countries are getting more and more familiar with her, and copyrights of the books have already been purchased by Denmark, Latvia, Russia, South Korea, Israel, Poland, Greece and Estonia. After achieving such huge success with Kake Make, Alma Littera wanted to take the brand further and develop a monetized educational mobile game for children.
