Quirky Kid will be in Bologna from 1st to 4th April for the annual Bologna Children’s Book Fair. As the world’s largest trade fair for children’s literature and creative content, Bologna brings together leading International authors, illustrators, publishers and agencies from over 100 countries! A platform for both traditional and digital media, the fair is a global epicentre for discussion on trends, innovative ideas and new perspectives in children’s publishing.

Quirky Kid will join the Australian collective stand on Hall 25, Stand B66. View the 2019 catalogue.

Continuing our success on the international stage from three previous Bologna Book Fairs, the Chinese Children’s Book Fair, the London Book Fair, and the Frankfurt Book Fair, we are excited to share our award-winning books with different audiences and perhaps even discover some unique new additions to the Quirky Kid resource collection.

From the clever kids at Quirky Kid

This year we will, of course, be taking our entire stable of our Quirky Kid publications on the road, but we will be showcasing two very special products in particular: Basecamp® and BriteChild®.

Basecamp® is our latest publication to become an award-winner, now we can’t wait to take it on tour and show the world why! An innovative cognitive-behavioural program, developed for managing anxiety, it is a unique, interactive and customisable tool, disguised in the familiar form of an illustrated book. BaseCamp® won “Best Designed Educational Book” at the 2018 Australian Book Design Awards, it won the “Educational Initiative Award – International Excellence” at the 2018 London Book Fair and was shortlisted for the “Educational Resource Award – International Excellence,” also at the 2018 London Book Fair. While we’re pleased-as-punch to receive this recognition for BaseCamp®, we’re not really altogether surprised. Our most important judges have been giving it the “thumbs-up” for a while already!

BriteChild® is our latest initiative and one for mums, dads and big people in the lives of little folks. Not a traditional children’s book, BriteChild® is a digital application, which connects parents and organisations to children’s development specialists, to address a broad range of challenges. BriteChild® is our first, truly digital innovation and we couldn’t be more pleased with what we’ve developed. We’re feeling quietly confident grown-ups around the world will be singing our praises soon too!

Bologna is a fantastic opportunity to spread the word for our evidence-based therapeutic tools to a global audience. As in past years, we also expect The Best of Friends® and PowerUp™ (more of our award-winning books) will continue to be really well-received too.

Quirky Kid has a few new resources under development and we are keen to create a big impact on the Social, Emotional and Educational sector. You can find out more about The Quirky Kid Resources on our website or at our publishing page.

When in Rome… well, Bologna anyway!

This year you will find Quirky Kid in Bologna at Stall Hall 25, Stand B6  at the Children’s Book Fair. Why not come and say “Bonjourno!”.

Take a peek!

Bologna Children and Adolescent Book Fair 2014
We are heading to the 2014 Bologna Children and Adolescent Book Fair (Italy) this week. We will be joining our colleagues from the Australian Publishers Association to network, learn, inspired and be inspired by all the amazing resources available word-wide for children and young people.

Since 1963 the Bologna Children’s Book Fair has been a leading international event for publishers. It really is the “place-to-be” for selling rights. The exhibition gives everyone the chance to discover the latest market trends in the book industry, to meet the most important illustrators, authors and see the winners of the most prestigious international awards

Events like these provide the perfect opportunity to showcase the amazing resources we produce here at The Quirky Kid Clinic. It is also a great place meet interesting and creative people doing similar work as we do. We will take the change and do some serious business by securing distribution and publishing rights. Our resources are already available in countries like USA, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and Brazil and we want to expand more.

This will be our first time in at the Bologna Book Fair and we can’t wait to dive into it. We will keep our Twitter and Facebook pages up to date with regular information and photos.
