Štefekovi jadi od A do Ž – ebook

This children’s book is written by young Croatian teacher and writer Josipa Kocman Grošinić. She imagined it to be a continuation and somewhat of a children’s version of her already published book, a dictionary of a local Kajkavian dialect in Croatia.

Two pages from the children’s book Štefekovi jadi – od A do Ž

For this project I fully illustrated and designed 20 pages. The story is fun and warm so my desire was to match the original tone with my illustrations.

The author planed to self-publish, but Croatian publishing house Ljevak liked it so much they published it as an ebook. This lovely tale will also get a printed form in the near future. Until then you can see it by clicking here.

A small dictionary and a game are also included in the book.
