Books

I write my books with love! My nieces live far from me and my books are our way of communication. In the fairy tales I tell them not only about magic and adventures but also about friendship, mutual help and support, love, respect and acceptance.

I invite you to taste the muffin baked by the dwarf Long Beard, fly the dragon, solve crimes and mysteries together with Holmes and Watson, find the Bookworms and even try to make friends with His Royal Highness the Chief Bookworm.

Welcome to our magic book world!

The publishers are welcome to explore and contact me in case you need any additional details or are interested in publishing my stories in other languages kazky.office@gmail.com


Reader’s journal

Organize your thoughts about the books you’ve read!

I made a special notebook for readers. They will find there a place to write down the author’s name, short information about the main characters and the events of the story they read. It is got up with the main characters of my own books and contains stickers. Readers can color the pictures and mark the plots they liked or disliked with the stickers. It will help the children to read easy and with pleasure, not to forget what was read. And if they need to prepare for the literature class it will help to refresh the plot in the memory quickly and without rereading the whole book again.

The Kotofeyevs

Join the investigators team and solve the most mysterious crimes!

The book contains twelve stories about the adventures of the detective – the dachshund Holmes and his assistant – the cat Watson Kotofeyev. At first the detectives do not see the connection between the crimes in a series they investigate, but later on they begin to understand that there is a genius criminal M. who is seeking for revenge!

These stories are also told in pictures. Together with the illustrator we wanted to preserve the well-known spirit of the century depicted in original Sherlock Holmes series by Arthur Conan Doyle and rise interest in children towards the original works. That is why the illustrations resemble black-and-white pictures and the characters on them with their appearances and cloths create the 19th century atmosphere. At the same time, we wanted to show the modern world and present the children of 5-12 y.o. with the steam punk style which is unusual for the books for this age. Our illustrations contain steam punk elements like a zeppelin, atypical computer, etc. We also included to our illustrations four detective riddles that could be solved by the readers if they are attentive enough.
