Tribe Exclusive Preview – First Illustrations from Abdi
“We are fortunate to have found in Russian artists Andrej Dugin and Olga Dugina an astonishing duo of boundless imagination and brilliant technique. Their paintings have a subtlety, beauty and power that stand tall next to the masters of any age“.
This is how publisher and CEO of Callaway Arts & Entertainment, Nicholas Callaway describes the work of the illustrators of the brand new Madonna’s children’s book, “The Adventures of Abdi“.
Written for readers aged six and up, “The Adventures of Abdi” is a 32-page jacketed hardcover volume, the fourth in Madonna’s children’s book series. It is the story of a little boy who has been given a very big task: to deliver the most precious necklace in the world to the Queen. Alongthe way he is robbed in the desert, thrown in a dungeon, and has a surprising encounter with a snake. But no matter what obstacles he faces, Abdi never gives hope up, guided by the words of his teacher, Eli: “Everything that happens is for the best“.
“The Adventues of Abdi” is also Madonna‘s most exotic tale yet. She imaginatively and humorously coveys an age-old message about the importance of optimism, even against all odds – an especially important message for the younger generation.
The book’s lavish and elaborated images were painted by husband-and-wife team Andrej Dugin and Olga Dugina, who also worked on the film “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban“. Here is a preview of some the amazing illustrations that you will find in the book that is released on November 8th in the US.
As the previous three titles, “The Adventures of Abdi” features premium paper and state-of-the-art digital prepress and preinting, and will be launched with a major international media campaign, including live television appearances and special events.
Madonna’s fifth chidren’s book, “Lotsa de Casha” will be released worldwide in June 2005.
