One of the most important things we can gift our children is an appreciation of culture, diversity and celebration. Plume: Festival Seeker is a culmination of all of these things, but it’s also a testament to connection, especially with those who experience lives so different to our own.
Written and illustrated by KBR Founder, Tania McCartney, this is the third book in this travel series for little ones – and it is, indeed, a celebration.
At a time when the world has seemingly closed down, Festival Seeker entices readers to remember the joy, colour and excitement to be found in travel, celebration, connection, and the joie de vivre we’ve seemingly lost these past few years.
Plume: Festival Seeker is the most gorgeous children’s picture book celebrating – what else? – celebrations! Throughout the year, the world is plump with astonishing festivals and Plume loves them all. Journey alongside this adventurous, colour-loving penguin as he jumps aboard the Albatross Express to enjoy a range of enchanting events across the globe.
Stare in wonder at the Up Helly Aa fire festival in Scotland and the freaky Day of Masquerade in Costa Rica. Get messy at the squelchy Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea or La Tomatina tomato battle in Spain. Scatter a rainbow of colour during Holi in India or enjoy a celebration of gifts, sweets and kindness at Eid al-Fitr in Algeria.
A year of wonder and excitement culminates in Plume’s favourite festival of them all – Christmas! Will his reluctant penguin friends join him for the celebrations?
Featuring a stunning rainbow-foil cover, Festival Seeker makes the perfect gift for travel-lovers and culture-buffs of all ages.
