A Liverpool author and illustrator team have published a children’s book that inspires children to love themselves and the planet by choosing a healthy plant-based diet. Available to buy now, The Girl Who Could See Stories is a unique, engaging story that has already received 5-star reader reviews on Amazon UK.
Written by Gill Torres, whose aim with the book was to, “convey a positive universal message of health,” it took 12 months to bring the story to life with the help of Ilan Sheady’s illustrations. Acting as a way in which to introduce young children to the concept of healthy, ethical living, the book teaches children where their food comes from using a positive message and a simple tale encouraging children to ‘feed their tummies with happy stories’.
From very young children who will love the enchanting tale and the colourful illustrations, to those up to the ages of 8 or 9 who can appreciate the various layers of meaning the book contains, The Girl Who Could See Stories makes for a satisfying read that many ages can enjoy.
The funds to publish the book were generated by selling pre-ordered copies to fans of the project all over the world. This hugely successful crowdfunding campaign proves that there is a huge gap in the market for a book like this, and a high demand from parents wanting to educate their children on such matters.
Author Gill Torres will be appearing on stage on Sunday 8th March 2015 at health and wellness event Beatroot at The Brink, to perform a reading of the book and also talk about her own journey to a plant-based vegan diet. Tickets for the event are available to buy now from The Brink, 15-21 Parr Street, Liverpool, L1 4JN.
The Girl Who Could See Stories is available to buy from www.realmagicpublishing.com as well as local retail outlets including News From Nowhere, The Olive Tree, Pennington’s, Purple Carrot and littlescribblesstories.com.
