|Email item||Print item||
MUT Publications has announced the launch of three new books for children as part of the Sensiela Kotba Saghtar, as part of its commitment to sustain literacy strategies in schools and to encourage children to read.
These are “Il-Gzira ta’ Wanyama” written by Claudia Cini, “What?! Another book of Stories?” written by Roberta Bajada and “Valuri biz-Zokkor” written by Charles Magro.
During a book-reading activity held at St. Edward’s College, students had the opportunity to meet the authors of these new publications and to listen to a short extract of each book.
“Il-Gzira ta’ Wanyama” by Claudia Cini tells about adventures on an island that no one knows about. Gustav, the main protagonist, meets a great deal of other characters in this interesting book and help them solve their problems.
“What?! Another book of Stories?” by Roberta Bajada is a book of short stories in many genres and deals with many different and sometimes unexpected themes.
“Valuri biz-Zokkor” by Charles Magro speaks about values with each of the short stories in the book providing a worthwhile lesson for life.
MUT Publications Ltd. was set up in February 1985 to increase the participation of the MUT in the publishing sector, to enhance the organisation of the Union’s Publications Division and to help members and other authors to publish their work.
The company has from time to time published books of an educational and pedagogical nature as well literature for adults. But it is the Sensiela Kotba Saghtar, the company’s imprint in the juvenile literature series, which has proved by far the most successful venture in this field.
