In Korea’s thriving children’s picture book market, The Lizard’s Tail is not the only book from Karadi Tales that has found a home. Maeng & Aeng Publishers also publish a lovely Korean translation of When the Earth Lost its Shapes, written by Shobha Viswanath and illustrated by Christine Kastl. The text in this book is minimalistic and the story is a simple, heartwarming story about team spirit, conviction and, of course, shapes. German illustrator Christine Kastl brings this book alive with her sensitive artwork in acrylic.
The translation is in progress still, but we’re very excited that one more book from our catalogue will be available to Korean children! We’ll keep you posted and let you know when the Korean edition of The Rumour is out in the market!
