Sayni and the Windowjet Brothers
Follow young Sayni as she seeks to find her passion in life by searching for pieces to build her life’s compass. Every child’s compass must be made very precisely, and each one is unique. As each compass develops, its child can follow it and find their way to a life of fulfillment and purpose.
Sayni faces confusion when the opportunity arises to settle for a ready-made compass from a factory. Will she grasp the opportunity to own a completed compass, or continue in her struggle to build her very own? One thing’s certain: the Windowjet people will have something to say!
About the book
I wrote this children's picture book when I was travelling in Tanzania, Africa. I was volunteering at an Eco-Camp near a town called Morogoro and I was doing a lot of thinking about what I wanted to do with my own life, and so it naturally manifested as the search for authenticity that Sayni experiences in this book. It is my first book and I'm very happy with how it all turned out. I loved the process of creating the illustrations for it.
I hope to continue to write and illustrate more children's picture books in the future.
