MUT Publications Ltd. has launched a new book for children as part of Sensiela Kotba Saghtar. It is called “Il-Milied, Leggendi u Grajjiet” by popular author Carmel G. Cauchi and illustrated by Frank Schembri. Typesetting and production by Annabelle Attard and distribution is being carried out by Matthew Falzon. This is the second book being launched by the publication house in 2015.
During a book-reading activity held at the Mellieha Primary School, students had the opportunity to see animations based on the book, listen to a short extract and also meet the author. The activity was also addressed by MUT Publications Ltd. Director and General Editor Charles Magro. This book tells about 12 legends and true stories related to Christmas.
MUT Publications Ltd. was set up in February 1985 to increase the participation of the MUT in the publishing sector, to enhance the organisation of the Union’s Publications Division and to help members and other authors to publish their work. The company has from time to time published books of an educational and pedagogical nature as well literature for adults. But it is the Sensiela Kotba Saghtar, the company’s imprint in the juvenile literature series, which has proved by far the most successful venture in this field.
