Fiona Goulding, an award winning local artist, has written and beautifully illustrated The Search for Silva, a children’s sophisticated picture book. Written from the point of view of animals, in the genre of an armchair treasure hunt, it is aimed at promoting compassion and empathy towards animals.
The Search for Silva conceals written and visual clues as to the whereabouts of Silva, a missing calf, somewhere in New Zealand. Readers join Sam, a welcome swallow, as he journeys with Silva’s mother Cindy on her desperate search for her baby. On their travels, they meet other animals and learn of their experiences.
Be the first to work out Silva’s location and a prize awaits you – a beautifully created original oil painting of Fiona’s featuring Cindy with Silva.
