| 07/04/2014

(CNS): Caymanian children’s author, illustrator and storyteller, Rabia Abdul-Hakim aka “Lady Rabia”, will be participating in the London Book Fair this week with her Caymanian children’s series of books, Kaa Kaa & Tokyo. With over 1,000 overseas companies, representing 50 countries and 25 international pavilions, the fair is a one of the largest events in the publishing world. From publishing giants to small independent houses it is also the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels. The local author is hoping to make her mark and described it as an exciting opportunity.

“The ‘K & T’ brand is very unique because though the series is culturally-inspired it has tremendous universal appeal, which makes it ideal for global distribution,” said Abdul-Hakim.

“This is an exciting opportunity to explore prospects for all my projects and to collaborate with global industry representatives.”

The author and illustrator said she has scheduled meetings with publishing houses, agents and PR companies.
