Head along to the launch of The Boy Who Talks In Bits And Bobs, the children’s picture book follow-up by author Eva Wong Nava. Listen to Eva talk about why she writes for children and why she feels that diversity in children’s fiction is so important. You can also find out more about her collaboration with the talented children’s book illustrator, Debasmita (Smita) Dasgupta!
The Boy Who Talks In Bits And Bobs is launched in conjunction with Buy SingLit Week 2019 and is available on Amazon pre-order. Writes our Senior Editor Kate McFarlane in her review of the book:
“With vibrant illustrations and a simple, relatable plot, The Boy Who Talks in Bits and Bobs gives children a wonderful, accessible lesson in empathy. By allowing kids to put themselves in the shoes of someone who is different – and gently asking them to imagine how it might feel to be laughed at by classmates – the book takes hold of readers’ heartstrings as Owen and his teacher come up with a triumphant plan to share and celebrate his strengths.
You, too, might love to play, or jump, or do math problems. We each have our own unique individual strengths (and weaknesses!), and The Boy Who Talks in Bits and Bobs is a timely and important reminder of this for children.”
