Children’s author visits school

Muscat: Children’s author Lorena Veldhuijzen introduced her new book Plastic Fantastic!: Real heroes in a world that wants to be saved to the students of A’soud Global School (AGS) in Muscat recently. It is the first book to be published on a special platform geared to cater to people with dyslexia. Plastic Fantastic is about Zero, an octopus without arms. Together with Hero, a fishstick who escaped from a deep fryer on a cruise ship, he has an adventurous journey to Plastic Fantastic where he hopes to get eight new arms. Plastic Fantastic, published in both Dutch and English, will also be available on the internationally acclaimed Dyslexie Font platform. The Dutch author, who debuted in 2012 with a bestseller in the Dyslexie Font, is the first to use this new platform.
