Is the dodo alive?

A new addition to the “Books for Children and Young Adults” series has come out, titled Is the dodo alive? by Maria Pieri Stasinou. The book was awarded the First Prize in the Competition of the Cypriot Association of Children and Young-Adult Books for the year 2014. It is illustrated by Vasilis Koutsogiannis, who was awarded the First Prize in the Bank of Cyprus Book Illustration Competition for 2015.

The book tells the story of a fascinating adventure in an exotic and mysterious land on the traces of a legendary and enchanting creature.

Mary and her father are on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. Her father is a photographer, member of a scientific team investigating the disappearance of an endemic bird, the dodo. While her father is away working, Mary explores the island in the company of two local children her age, Andre and Philippe. After two back-to-back robberies, one at the postal museum and the other on the delegation’s excavation site, and the discovery of a diary hiding a secret for the dodos, the children will take a plunge into an adventure… and trouble! Also enmeshed in their affairs are two rather hostile elderly men who for some reason act suspiciously.
