“Winky's Colours: A Penguin's Story” by Anita Kovacevic is not only adorable but also a wise book.

Firstly, Winky, the penguin is adorable. He is just so cute, I would wish he’d be available as a stuffed animal. But, all cuteness aside, Kovacevic’s book raises an interesting question, which I have never read before in a children’s book, “… Can you imagine living somewhere where everything is mostly black-and-white?...”

I guess most children have never thought about this question and therefore will

Winky is a happy little penguin who loves colours! Unfortunately, everything around him is black, white or grey, so he decides to set off on an adventure to find colour! Will he find what he is looking for?

The story is simple but beautiful. It makes us wonder: what's it like to live in a world with no colours? It's a question we seldom ask ourselves. I love that it makes us think and raises our awareness about pollution and environment (the topics I care very much about!) and it shows us the val

I love also to see good quality books with a positive message that can be shared to children, who are like little sponges, forming hopefully good attitudes. There is also the added benefit of love, comfort and closeness

It has been said, “The best way to understand others is to walk a mile in their shoes.” I say, “The best way to understand ourselves is to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.” Which of us has not set out in search of a brighter horizon, longing to add more color and excitement to our irascible black and grey worlds? Which of us has not misunderstood the meaning of real friendship? Winky’s Colours is a book for all ages. The symbolism in this fresh and delightful tale addresses far more than a p ...more

A fantabulous story about a penguin, his home, those around him and his zest for what he wants. The author's inclusion of tasks make it an ideal book for the classroom as well as for parents wanting to extend their child's learning. I love the illustrations too!

Storytelling and poetry have always been my passion. Teaching English for over twenty years has inspired me to write, illustrate and publish my stories.

Today, my list of published books, in multiple genres and age groups, has grown to a list I am proud of. I participated in a charity anti-bullying e-book project Inner Giant, both the Awethologies (Light volumes), story collections by a worldwide
