Tiny Owl Publishing attended South London Gallery Children’s Book Fair last Friday and Saturday, the 27th & 28th of November. Seeing children and their parents, all interested in children’s books, and then particularly meeting authors, illustrators and our colleagues in other publishing houses, always invigorates us. Furthermore, our books were sincerely welcomed in the book fair which made us very proud and happy.
Tiny Owl books are different from the mainstream. Namely, our readers are able to explore other cultures more deeply and with excitement. This makes people more approachable and the world friendlier, safer and happier. We believe children need to learn more about other cultures, today more than ever before. So we are pursuing cultural diversity as a goal. Although we know this path is not easy to tread, we are pleased to see a good reception among children, parents, teachers, librarians and journalists. This is all heartwarming.
During the book fair we were thrilled to see children pulling their parent’s hands towards our stand to show them a beautiful picture in one of our books. People listened to our explanations enthusiastically and gave us very nice feedbacks.
We introduced our Christmas bundles there and they were received warmly by the buyers. Our bestsellers in this book fair were: 1. the Parrot and the Merchant by Marjan Vafaeian, 2. When I Coloured in the World written by Ahmadreza Ahmadi and illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi, and 3.The Little Black Fish written by Samad Behrangi and illustrated by Farshid Mesghali.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank South London Gallery once again. We are particularly grateful to Amber Jones for everything.
All books are available to buy here.
