'Dear Earth' at Bologna Book Fair
Book Fair season is officially upon us!
If you are a visitor this year, keep an eye out for the Little Tiger Group's stand - doesn't it look great?! You might be lucky enough to spot a gorgeous preview of Dear Earth; a love-letter to Mother Nature that raises awareness of how we can appreciate and protect different worldwide habitats. Illo Agency artist Clara Anganuzzi provides the illustration for the upcoming title.
Thousands of schoolchildren and young people recently walked out of classes to join a UK-wide climate strike, amid growing anger at the failure of politicians to tackle the escalating ecological crisis. In light of our global warming and conservation crisis, Clara's illustrations give a voice to a planet that cannot speak for itself.
It was reported last week by The Bookseller that the 30-year-old Little Tiger group has been acquired by Penguin Random House. Little Tiger, founded by Monty Bhatia and Kuki Bhatia in London in 1987, publishes over 200 new books a year and has a 1000-strong backlist.
Bhatia said: "We have been a family company for over 30 years, but it has been a vision of mine from our earliest founding days that we would take every opportunity to grow and prosper. Being brought into the Penguin Random House fold will enable the Little Tiger Group to elevate our business to the next level, both in the US and internationally."
You will have to wait a little longer to get your hands on Dear Earth ahead of its release, but we are certain that this is an upcoming title that both young and older readers alike won't want to miss!
