Parents and staff from Fife Gingerbread, and volunteers from creative arts and media charity, Anim8s, have created Ollie and Isla’s Magical Christmas. The story has been written to better reflect the experiences of real people, rather than the traditional images of roaring fires and festive feasts.
Parents worked closely with the Anim8s artists and Fife Gingerbread staff to write a story which local children can identify with. Groups took part in writing, drawing, painting, and photography sessions which were used to bring the book together. Anim8s have also now played their part in completing the book.
The story launches on Monday 04 December and the book will be available for families to borrow from Templehall Library, Kirkcaldy.
