Kavala: The four season Fairytale
Released from Saita Publications are four colorful fairytales, one for each season:
Red for spring
Yellow for summer
White for winter
One the occasion of these fairytales, and with the help from the Magic Card Deck of fairytales, and inspired by the history of Kavala, together with the children we created four fairytales which take place in the four seasons of the year in the city.
