Com­mu­nity book ef­fort a mon­ster suc­cess

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -

THE Ad­ven­tures of the Bel­monsters, the pic­ture book com­mu­nity project cre­ated by 14 ta­lented Bel­mont res­i­dents, is now on sale at the City of Bel­mont Civic Cen­tre and Ruth Faulkner Pub­lic Li­brary.

Un­der the guid­ance of il­lus­tra­tor Bai­ley Bosch and au­thor Cameron Aiken­head, the book took 10 work­shop ses­sions to bring to life.

City of Bel­mont Mayor Phil Marks said the spe­cial chil­dren’s book was pro­duced in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the com­mu­nity and the City.

The Bel­monsters are myth­i­cal crea­tures who live in the City of Bel­mont but do not ven­ture from their home un­til they meet a new friend, a young boy, who en­cour­ages the Bel­monsters to play and ex­plore their lo­cal area.

The City re­cently held a func­tion to cel­e­brate the fi­nal pub­lished work.

“So in the spirit of the Bel­monsters I en­cour­age you all to read this chil­dren’s book and ex­plore this won­der­ful story,” Mayor Marks said.

Young read­ers Harper Ri­p­ley and Asha Tick­ner at the Bel­monster book cel­e­bra­tion.
