Catch the Blue Bear for Me
A boy called Sky got the world’s nicest plushy bear for his birthday. But the bear had to remain wrapped in cellophane.
“So that it wouldn’t get all dusty”, said mum. Sky could only look at the bear, touch it, and listen to the rustling of the cellophane. The picture book Catch the Blue Bear for Me is a gentle story about growing up in a normal family, but it also shows how once in a while every child comes across a problem that leaves a mark on its soul.
Catch the Blue Bear for Me is one of the 20 Best Designed Books in Croatia in 2018 nominated for the international competition Best Book Design from all over the World (Leipzig) and for the exhibition Book Art International (Frankfurt). In addition to that, the book has won the Grigor Vitez award, the most prestigious Croatian children and young adult book award in the categories of writing and illustrations.
