Christmas is our favorite season of the year. We LOVE and truly enjoy everything about it. The gorgeous Christmas decorations, the street lightings, the atmosphere, the delicious Christmas food, dishes, cookies, and cakes. The smell of chocolate and cinnamon. The timeless Christmas songs such as “Last Christmas” by George Michael or “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey, “Mistletoe and wine” by Cliff Richard, “Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree” by Kim Wilde, and of course all the legendary songs by the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley and the beautiful Doris Day.

In the previous years, we are also enjoying all the seasonal and festive Christmas movies by Hallmark Channel. We know it’s cheesy but hey we can’t help it! We enjoy watching them anyway. So it is no surprise that a few of our stories take place in the most beautiful season of the year.





THE CAROUSEL - Trapped In A Circle

The beautiful and antique city carousel in the heart of Florence in Italy is under a magical spell. Miles away in Barcelona, Spain, a little girl named Shirzad receives a little carousel from her grandparents on Christmas Eve 2019. Once she starts to play the music, she is thrown into an unknown world with her new friend, the white horse, Esperanza, and a Tuscan girl named Mitra. The future of an entire generation lies in the hands of two young girls and a horse. Will the three be able to break the spell?

This story shows us that it is okay to be different. We shouldn’t be afraid of leaving the circle of our daily lives and having new experiences. But we should always be aware that our actions have consequences. Selfish decisions affect others around us. So whatever wishes, goals and dreams we have, we should be prepared and ready to deal with the unforeseeable outcomes!

Lovely, “C’est toujours l’amour”, which means “It’s always love”, is an inspiring story for young and young-at-heart readers.

Lovely is a little spoiled and snobbish Chihuahua living in the heart of Paris close to Musée du Louvre. She is sharing a lovely apartment with her owner. Lovely’s life is perfect until Josephine decides to move permanently to London for love and work. Lovely is devastated and heartbroken. She is desperately unhappy about the upcoming changes. A new country means a new language and a new culture. On her train drive from Paris to London Lovely’s worries vanish unexpectedly. Instead of ending up in London with Josephine and her fiancé, James, the little Chihuahua ends up in a refugee camp in Calais. What happened? Where is Josephine? Will the two ever be reunited?

My Voice for the Voiceless
Anyone can become a refugee! Anyone from any country, level of education and income can become a refugee. This is the message of this educational story for the Lily4Refugees Project. We should never judge people and their life stories. Instead, we should be understanding and compassionate towards innocent people who are forced to leave their homeland for a better life and a hopeful future in dignity. We should never point our fingers at others; instead, we should look at our own actions.

LEONARDO - Humans Just Dont Care!

Leonardo is a young and hopeless dog with a difficult life journey full of emotional and physical obstacles. After leaving an animal shelter he ends up in an orphanage in the heart of Florence. But the manager and the children treat him so badly that he runs away in the darkness of the night in hope of finding love and kindness. After a stressful journey filled with struggles, he ends up in the capital city of Italy, in Rome, and has only one goal. He wants to meet Pope Francis and ask him why he sees humans but not humanity. Why humans treat each other and him so badly and why they just don’t care!

My Voice for the Voiceless
During our many visits to major cities like Rome in Italy, we have experienced unfortunate people sleeping on the streets, while residents of the cities, national and international tourists walk by daily without taking notice and we’ve been wondering why. It is heartbreaking and shameful to look out of your fancy and warm hotel room with your comfy bed, while helpless humans struggling and surviving on the freezing cold streets just a few footsteps away and are only covered with newspapers. It is a tragedy of humanity how ignoring homeless people has become normality. It is a scandal how we look away and don’t act. Every single human being deserves a life of dignity. Every single soul deserves to be taken care of. Every single human being deserves to experience love and kindness, whether it is a child in an orphanage or homeless people and refugees on our streets. The story of Leonardo is my voice for the forgotten souls!

It's really true, the best matches are made when you least expect it. Lily, a sensitive and affectionate child, is well aware that she finds herself, in difficult circumstances. She is tossed on a journey without a destination and without a future, far away from her homeland, because of a cruel and inhumane war. In the cold and impersonal terminal of an international airport a winking little friend locks his eyes with a child in a souvenir shop. It is love at first sight. He chooses her and she chooses him from among many. It is the beginning of Lily’s adventure full of dark shades, of discouragement, depression and departures, but always next to the reassuring smile of little Teddy. A faithful and unmissable friend. This tender story is told in the words of a loyal teddy bear who spends a lifetime waiting for his Lily to shower him with her reassuring love and caring. A story about the importance of friendship and memories. A magical tale, like a warm hug that smells of childhood, reassuring memories and happy thoughts.

AMERICAS ROYAL FAMILY (KIDS COVER)

This is a illustrated book in colour.

America’s Royal Family is a humorous adventure parody. Lisy is a lonely girl and all she wants is a family who will love her and make her feel as though she belongs. She suddenly is fed up with feeling this way and flies from Switzerland to the United States. As Lisy travels from New York to Washington and then to Los Angeles, she has some of the biggest celebrities such as Prince Harry of Wales and historical figures such as President Abraham Lincoln completely stumped as she searches for America’s Royal Family. This is an enjoyable, engaging and entertaining story that will keep you guessing… ‘Who is America’s Royal family?’ and ‘do they really exist?’

America’s Royal Family is a reflection of the stupidity of our social media and botty-obsessed society. Because despite of the global-connection to strangers more people feel lonelier, isolated, unloved and unappreciated than ever. Thanks to social media many people forget the important values in life these days. Our brains are overdosed with useless informations and we all are affected by it whether we like it or not. The really precious and priceless gifts in life such as love, family and friendship are becoming irrelevant. This satire story brings to life some current issues faced by social media and today’s materialism and superficiality.
