Explore places of your choice in a new personalized children’s book
A new children’s book, telling the story of a youngster on an adventure-filled journey, has been released with the ability to be personalized in three different locations in Iceland, Turkey, Egypt, Mongolia, of Bolivia and the Western Ghats.
“The Unusual Adventures of a Brave Explorer”, published by Merlinwand, is an illustrated tale of an inventive young man from a picturesque Indian village who craves unusual and exciting adventures in different parts of the world. It is written by author and teacher Pujita Krishna and illustrated by Bengali artist Abira Das.
“The unimaginative young protagonist of my story with a thirst for adventure, practically materialized on his own! The trips to distant destinations were a semi-deliberate attempt to also educate young readers about lands and cultures they might not know, in a playful way, without appearing to be instructive. The biggest challenge however was to write everything in verse and put it together without any details,” the author said.
In the book, according to the illustrator, the main character travels the most dangerous road in the world, travels to the land that dates back to the time of the pharaohs, walks through fascinating bazaars and spectacular landscapes, and rides on Bactrian camels.
”The hardest part was illustrating these incredible places with all the intricate detail, while still being simple enough for an enlightened child. Incredibly grateful to Merlinwand for giving me the opportunity to work on this and create this amazing book that can reach curious minds around the world, with an added element of personalization,” said Das, the illustrator of the book.
The publishing house, which offers children the unique possibility of having the protagonist under their own name, aims to “help children explore the world where they can learn and create in a fun and engaging way”.
“We have another interesting story in the works called ‘The Land Beyond the Moon’ which is about a child coping with the loss of his pet. Apart from that we are bonding with companies to create personalized storybooks,” said Sudarshan Vig, CEO of Merlinwand.
The book, priced at Rs 1,499, is currently available for sale on the publisher’s website. Merlinwand’s previous books include ”The Climate Ninja”, ”The Tingling Finger” and ”The Music Band”.
