LOVE FOR NATURE
For more than a century, the story "Who made Vic's shirt?" brought hope to children and awakened a feeling of love for nature and all animals. This year, it comes in a new dress but with the same profound yet simple message that help and support are available to each of us.
The modern-time rewrite of the story by Vesna Milek will evoke the feeling of love for nature and everything in it. Illustrations by Dreja Novak will tie together the wholesome experience of the book, adding a touch of magic to an already wonderful story.
NEW VISION OF THE WORLD
The world we live in is calling for change. Now, more than ever, it needs a new vision of a place where we lovingly care for each other and where the door to love and equality opens far and wide.
FOR ALL GENERATIONS
Learning how to love is never out of date, so the story will open the hearts of both the youngest and older readers.
This fairy tale enriched the lives of many generations of children, bringing them hope and awakening a love for nature and animals.
It is now presented in a new retelling, but with the same deep message of love and hope, that help and support is available to every one of us.
About the author
Vesna Milek, a writer and a journalist for the newspaper Delo, has been making a difference on the Slovenian media platform with in-depth interviews and articles for Sobotna priloga Dela for more than two decades. She has also been working for the last 5 years as an author and host of the TV show on TVS Od blizu and the shows Rdeče in črno at M-soseska.tv.

She has responded to Iza Sia Login’s invitation to modernize the children’s classic written by Fran Levstik, Kdo je Vidku napravil srajčico? (Who Made Vic’s Shirt?) since, as she says herself, this is one of her favorite stories because it speaks of solidarity, cooperation, and love for all living beings.
