A charming and original picture book about pursuing your dreams and believing in yourself. With cutout kiosk window to spark imaginative play and interactive reading.
Imagine living and working every day in the same small kiosk. For years, the kiosk has been Olga’s life. She spends her days inside reading travel magazines and dreaming of escaping to distant places. One day a chance occurrence turns her upside down—literally—and sets her off on an unexpected journey.
This inspiring and quirky picture book for 5 to 8 year olds contains bright and original illustrations full of humour and warmth. Its front cover features a clever cutout kiosk window so that young readers can see Olga stuck behind her kiosk or use their imagination and get behind it to sell things from their own pretend shop!
A warm and curious story about someone who is stuck finding a way to escape their daily routine and be free. The story was originally produced as an internationally recognised short animation screened at over 100 festivals around the world.
