Text and Images from The Hero of the Mountain

Hero of the mountainThe little fox Bubu was very excited. The big contest “Hero of the Mountain” was going to take
place the next day. The bravest and most powerful animals and people were going to take part in it.

Hero of the mountainBubu wanted to see the contest and meet the most famous heroes in the world. He carefully studied the map. The contest would take place high on the mountain, on the grounds of the owlmagician, Boran. Bubu was going to have a long trip the next day . . .

Hero of the mountainThat evening, Bubu could not fall asleep till late at night. He was looking at the distant peak, dreaming about the contest. He was eager for the morning to come.

Hero of the mountainIn the morning he woke up early, brushed his teeth and ate his breakfast quickly. He had a long way to go, so he had a good meal. The breakfast, prepared by his mom, was very delicious.

    A very sweet story, with a simple stylised language which will appeal to young children. Cute colourful illustrations, and a good length for the intended audience. It is great that the book is also available free in a number of different languages for bilingual children and for learning a second language at the author’s website.
