Take one crazy travelling family, add amazing countries and cultures, throw in a few famous legends, include some very real issues for kids today, and what do you have?
The Itchee Feet fiction range.
We’ve used the Feet family as a portal into tales and adventures for kids. We believe there are three types of young travellers.
- Those kids who dream of travelling. Children don’t even have to leave home to now feel like they’re travelling. Our stories will take them there which means everyone can now afford to travel.
- For those children who are travelling, our books give them the opportunity to connect even further to the countries they’re visiting.
- Expatriate kids, TCKs and global nomads. Finally their tales are being told through the Feet family characters.
Our travel fiction range of books is exciting, entertaining and educational.
“The Feet family and their various adventures are set to become bestsellers among expat children who have, up until now, been somewhat overlooked by the literary world…. Not only can these books encourage children to read more, they are also a superb way of helping children adjust to a life spent constantly on the move.” — The Expat Magazine Malaysia
“It was very enjoyable. I like the travel part of the series. I like it when book teach about different lands and cultures.” This Kid Reviews Books
The Daisy Diaries – Japan
(Paperback $12.95, ebook $3.99)
NAME: Daisy Feet.
NATIONALITY: Duel citizen. Expat kid. Confused.
CURRENT LOCATION: On a plane, somewhere over Japan. I can see Mount Fuji from the window. I don’t care if we slam into it. Instant death by national wonder would be a lot less painful than having to face what’s on the ground: a new life. Let me rephrase that. Another new life!
I don’t want a new life. I like my old one in Sydney. I had great friends, an amazing first boyfriend, and school was bearable. But now my parents expect me to start all over again in Tokyo.
I wonder if I can call child services from a plane.
It’s not easy being Daisy… but it’s always interesting. Experience Japan through the eyes of a truly well-travelled teen.
Part travel guide, part romance, a whole world of fun.
