About This Book:

As Mali, Keela and Bongo sail the South Seas from Banana Island to Glow-Worm Cave, caring, trust, determination and peacefulness are just a few of the many virtues they explore along the way.

The Adventures of Mali & Keela: A Virtues Book for Children is a collection of thirteen beautifully crafted adventure stories. It captivates the imagination while inspiring children to discover the best within themselves. Each story visits four virtues, so that by the time our heroes sail home at the end of the book, fifty-two virtues have been explored.

At the end of each story, an interactive section encourages discussion and helps adults and children alike find the meaning and the magic of the virtues in their own lives.

Cover Design Ideas and Development Process:

From Jonathan Collins, author of The Adventures of Mali & Keela: A Virtues Book for Children:

The cover of The Adventures of Mali & Keela was designed to convey a sense of freedom, joy and adventure. This book seeks to transport the reader to a place where we are on the open sea with our heroes, feeling the excitement of the quest, listening to the slap of waves against the hull and feeling the salty wind in our hair! The use of bright colors and clean typography give a sense of optimism and lightness. I hope the joy on the faces of the characters reflects the joy the book delivers to those who hold it in their hands!
