Launch of a Children's Book by Birgitta Sif
Icelandic illustrator and author Birgitta Sif launches her first children's book "Oliver" at the Heffers Bookshop in Cambridge today from 6-8 pm, as part of the Cambridge Festival of Illustration 2012.
Birgitta Sif completed a BFA degree from Cornell Univerisy, New York and recently received a Masters degree in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art, UK.
"Oliver is different. He enjoys his solitude. He likes playing with his friends, who are puppets, stuffed animals, and other toys. With his rich imagination, Oliver’s day is never dull. There are bridges to cross, sharks to fight, and treasures to find! But maybe toys don’t always give a boy everything he needs. Maybe he needs another kind of companion.
Will Oliver discover a way to be, well, different? When his tennis ball rolls across the lawn into the yard of the girl next door, he just might be".
