Neli Kodrič Filipić, Tomislav Torjanac (illustrator)
Mozaik knjiga (HR) 2009. | Mladinska knjiga (SI) 2009.


EN “The gorgeous picture book [The Little Girl and the Giant] was written by Neli Kodrič Filipić and beautifully illustrated – not illustrated, magnificently painted! – by T. Torjanac, a Croatian painter known throughout the world.”
– Manca Košir

“The rich artistry [of The Little Girl and the Giant] is captivating. It’s not easy to find a good picture book, trust me, so the appearance of such a lovely painted story needs to be praised. And children learn not only by listening, but by looking as well.”
Jutarnji list
 
HR “Prelijepu dječju slikovnicu [Djevojčica i div] napisala je Neli Kodrič Filipić, a prekrasno ilustrirao – da ilustrirao, veličanstveno naslikao! – Tomislav Torjanac, hrvatski slikar kojega poznaje cijeli svijet.”
– Manca Košir

“[Djevojčica i div] osvaja svojom bogatom likovnošću. Nije jednostavno naći dobru slikovnicu, vjerujte, stoga treba pozdraviti pojavu tako lijepo oslikane priče. A djeca uče ne samo slušajući, nego i gledajući.”
Jutarnji list


The Little Girl and the Giant, front and back cover   Djevojčica i div, naslovnica i zaslovnica

The Little Girl and the Giant picture book was made after a harrowing yet liberating story by an award-winning Slovenian author Neli Kodrič Filipić about pain, sorrow and fear being passed on from generation to generation until someone finds the strength to release them. In other words, the book deals with a serious topic of generational aspect of violence within the family.   Slikovnica Djevojčica i div nastala je prema potresnoj i istovremeno oslobađajućoj priči nagrađivane slovenske spisateljice Neli Kodrič Filipić o tome kako se bol, tuga i strah prenose kroz obitelj iz generacije u generaciju, sve dok ih netko ne odluči izbaciti iz sebe. Drugim riječima, slikovnica se bavi vrlo ozbiljnom temom generacijskog aspekta nasilja u obitelji.

All the illustrations in the book were painted in oils on 57x40 cm wooden panels in combination with digital medium. The book design and hand-lettering were also done by me.   Sve ilustracije u knjizi naslikane su uljenim bojama na drvenim podlogama 57x40 cm u kombinaciji s digitalnom tehnikom. Dizajn slikovnice i vlastoručno upisani tekst također su moje djelo.
