Inspired :: VIVALDI
I love how Mari Kanstad Johnsen illustrated the children's book VIVALDI. I am an avid children's literature collector, and the illustrations are as important to me as the story. So often you'll find a lovely story, but poor illustrations or vice-versa, that really ruins the story. I've had dreams of being a children's book author since I was in middle school, but I don't know if that day will ever come for me, so getting to read and see books like VIVALDI brings me great joy.
VIVALDI is a story written by Helge Torvund about a little girl named Tyra, who does not like school – so she has stopped talking there. The other kids bullying her, and make her feel very small. Tyra isn't this way at home though, she is happy at home and one day she gets a kitten. Something begins to change in Tyra's life after she gets that little kitten, she begins to feel confident about facing her troubles, because she is no longer facing them alone.
