Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2017!


We have returned from Bologna, all inspired and super charged! Sharing some hastily clicked pics of glimpses of the city centre and of the book fair:

And we are there!


You know you’ve landed in Italy because…! This one was right at the airport terminal. đŸ˜€

Shamelessly clicking pics of this irresistible window display and the view inside!



Gorgeous picture books from around the world at the Book Fair book shop…


This insanely eye-popping grandeur of the Sala dello Stabat Mater at the ArchiginnĂ sio Library where the 6 regional BOP Bologna Prizes for the Best Children’s Publisher of the Year. What a proud moment it was for India to have Shobha Viswanath of Karadi Tales as one of the nominated publishers!!
