I was recently contacted by the talented team who created a brand new book due to be launched in July this year. The story ‘Message in a Bottle’ is a little bit different in the fact that it has a unique concept. It is an exciting adventure which is personalised to your child, creating memories that you will both treasure for a lifetime.
Unlike other personalised books, the story is not about them but, instead, it includes them. This will mean that it will teach them empathy and help them to see the world through other people’s eyes. The tale of adventure is exciting with a hidden surprise – a message to the child the book has been gifted to – but who sent the message and what it will say? On top of all of this, it is also a great way for your child to learn about the world around them . The geography of the animals are appropriate to each country and this has been verified by a professional biologist.
The book is full of lovable characters, drawn beautifully by Tuire Siiriainen. She has a huge passion for illustration and loves to tell stories through pictures. Tuire also came up with the concept for the book with her partner, Wojtek. She then collaborated with Tom Percival, well-known for the cover art illustrator for the Best-Selling Skullduggery Pleasant series as well as having created animations for Oliver Jeffers and David Walliams, to turn the storyline into beautiful words. Tuire then established Blueberry & Pie as a small independent publishing house in September 2015 to make this book happen. Message in a bottle is the first project, with many more to follow.
