‘Blanket Travel’ Illustration by Kim Da Jeong October 12 2012
At Epigram Books, we value not only quality writing, but also well-designed books. Recently we have put out four titles for children, translated from the original Italian, Spanish, Korean and French into English. We love how these these books can be enjoyed not only by young ones but also by adults, with their heartwarming stories and beautiful illustrations!
Enjoy the following video from Kim Da-Jeong, writer and illustrator of Blanket Travel, about two siblings who reassure their sister that nighttime can be fun rather than scary. From diving into oceans to riding a kangaroo, they travel together everywhere on their blanket.
Da-Jeong graduated in 2006 from Kookmin University in Seoul, South Korea, where she studied painting. She is currently pursuing a graduate degree in illustration. Blanket Travel, published for the first time by Epigram Books, is her first children’s book. We would like to thank her for taking the time to specially film this video for us!
Amos Lee, The TV Series, out in 2012! September 27 2011
The Diary of Amos Lee, the book your kids just can’t get enough of, is being turned into a TV series! Okto, the channel that is set to launch the show next year, recently conducted auditions at various malls across the island.
Watch this memorable audition by 11-year-old Gaius Ong.
Interviewer: “Why do you like the books?”
Gaius: “Actually, I don’t have the book, but I go to Popular, take the book and read.”
For the record, Epigram Books encourages you to buy the books. Read all about our series here. The series now includes a book by Amos’ attention-loving sister, Whoopie Lee, who will set the record straight on the outrageous tales perpetuated by her older brother.
