Shooting Stars by Airien Adani Ludin #kiba_2020
A little star has fallen into the room of a child who is afraid of the dark. The little star wants to return to her family in the sky, but light pollution from the surrounding buildings blocks her view.
To clear the night sky, the child and the little star must work together to turn off the lights from the surrounding area. Maybe the darkness isn’t so scary huh!
Airien @riendin likes to watch movies and keeps his parakeet named Soda. He hopes that more and more children’s books will be published with themes that can inspire readers, both children, and adults. So that children’s books can get more attention and appreciation by the people of Indonesia.

Samantha loves reading, gardening, and listening to songs. The hope is that the world of illustration and children’s books in Indonesia can grow, produce more and more inspirational storybooks, and make Indonesian illustrators and writers happy.

Pleiades and Bedhaya Ketawang Dance by Amanda Rizqi Nursidin #kiba_2020
Chika is learning a dance, she tells the story behind the dance to Dini, her best friend. This dance tells of a Queen who sends the 7 most beautiful stars as a form of her love to the King who is on Earth. The seven stars also performed the Bedhaya Ketawang dance so that a gate was formed between the two worlds that could bring together the Queen and the King. Now, when you look at the Pleiades, seven stars shine brightly at night, a sign that the door between worlds is opening.
Let’s get acquainted with Amanda, who enjoys reading fiction books and collecting children’s picture books. What are his hopes for the world of children’s book illustration?
He hopes that the field of children’s book illustration can develop for the better and my goal is to open an agency to help illustrators in making works, especially for children’s books.

“Latitude Cucumber” by Fauzhyana Sharifa #kiba_2020
Latitude Cube is different from other stars. It has a very special long tail. All of Lintang Kemukus’s friends were annoyed with his tail that dangled everywhere, even though Lintang Kemukus just wanted to play together. They didn’t understand that Latitude Cube was an extraordinary star.
Zhyan likes to tell stories through many visual media, illustrations, films, animation, photography, and all that can make a good impression on people’s hearts.
He hopes that children around the world, especially in Indonesia, can continue to learn and explore new things through books and illustrations. Hopefully, there will be more relevant topics to be raised and introduced to the children.
