The 75th Frankfurter Buchmesse, the largest trade show for books, was held every year in Frankfurt, Germany. For worldwide business and trading, it is regarded as the most significant book fair on earth.
The Frankfurt Book Fair celebrated its 75th anniversary, celebrating literary and cultural diversity. With a series of activities prepared, one of the most anticipated this year is the chosen country to be the guest of honor, which is Slovenia. The country will present not just its diverse, unique qualities as an attractive place to travel but also as a country with a rich literary tradition.
This year, Citi of Books joined the largest book fair in the world. We were excited to present books written by our distinguished authors. In our assigned booth, a range of books—from fiction to nonfiction—would be on exhibit. A book included in the display was “The Singing Princess” by Bunnie Colson.
Bunnie Colson was very shy and spent most of her time daydreaming and reading. It was much later in life when she decided to pursue her career in accounting and dabble with writing. The book “The Singing Princess” was her first book dedicated to her children, Randy and Denise.
She always encourages her children to read lots of books and chase after their dreams. She wrote “The Singing Princess” while working her way through college. She felt inspired to write a children’s book and just ran with it. It was not until many years later that her grandson suggested she get the book published. Even though she stopped writing, to this day, she still loves to read and now encourages her grandson to do the same.
“The Singing Princess” is a book about a young and beautiful princess named Polly. Polly loves to sing and lives in a castle with her mother. She had such a beautiful voice that she decided to enter a competition in Sturton.
On the way to the competition, she runs into a lot of new friends. She meets a toad, an owl, and a boy. She also must escape the wicked witch of the forest. Polly and her new friends travel through the forest and must overcome many obstacles along the way. Polly is confident that with their help, she can defeat the witch and win the competition.
