The Bayard group, with its various publishing and press houses (Bayard, Milan), publishes more than 800 new books and 40 magazines every year, from very young children to young adults.

This creation is based on the talent of authors and illustrators who have been working with the group for many years, and on a strong editorial commitment: to engage children’s imaginations, give them plenty of room for their emotions, encourage them to discover the world with their 5 senses, awaken their critical minds and help them become the citizens of tomorrow.

A unique heritage that accompanies the lives of a great many children and families, in France and abroad: in Europe, the United States and Asia.

Part of this heritage is available for audiovisual adaptation.

This offer is brought together in a catalog of audiovisual rights offering fiction, comics and documentaries for youth and family audiences. An original offer at the heart of the Bayard spirit, free and anchored in its time.
