Allow me to introduce myself. I am painter and writer working mainly for children. I co-operate with many publishing houses in Slovakia and abroad.
Now after the opening of EU borders there is a unique possibility for children to learn more about the other countries and to communicate with their mates. Therefore I am preparing a new project where I would like to co-operate with your country. The topic of the project is Fairy Tales From Europe. It should be a collection of original fairy tales from all EU countries.
My plan is to include A CD into the book with the tales red by outstanding Slovak actors. The book will be published by Seneca publishing house and if the financial situation allowes I am planning to publish also an English version or the version in other language depending on the interest of the individual countries.
During my research in the libraries I found out that there is no translation of the fairy tales from your country so far. So I would like to ask you to help me contacting some relevant institution in your country which could help me with the selection (1-2 fairy tales).
Part of the project is a special evening for children during the presentation of the book. We would like to invite also children from the foster homes and give them the book. We would like also give CDs to blind children.
