脆炸兒童 Crispy Children
Libby Lam 林凱思

由香港人創作,香港人繪畫,香港人出版的原創童書。繼《清單美人》 及《我的摯友》,Libby Lam 又一創作。

<人本善>,但現實社會中,人往往把自己的利益放在最先,甚至大是大非之前!

「脆炸兒童」的主角 - 阿德,本是一個快樂的農夫。但因為貧窮和飢餓,竟然被迫做違背良心的事。要把小孩子捉來做主人的晚餐。阿德會否就範,走上做壞人的路?

「脆炸兒童」用幽默黑暗的手法,帶小朋友走進一個物慾和正義的兩難掙扎裏。令他們意識到現實世界的複雜和壓力,從而明白到人之本善,多聽從自己良心和有勇氣地做對事的重要性。

作者林凱思到中國麗江和泰國清邁取景,用豐富的想像力創作出一個鮮艷的夢幻市鎮和多個獨特的人物。透過有趣的情節引導小讀者尋找自己善良的本質,跟着主角阿德經歷多個難關,與他堅持回應良心的呼喚,做個平凡的小英雄。

'Crispy Children' tells the story of a starving elf named De who was propelled to do evil acts in exchange for food. Having come across with several hard moments when being caught between harming or helping others, De found strength in his conscious and was able to endure in spite of threats. This thrilling but funny journey of children hunting ends on a positive note by celebrating the hero who lives within each of us.

作者簡介

林凱思 (Libby Lam),畢業於香港大學社會科學院。自費完成香港中文大學工業及組織心理學碩士課程。曾到新加坡工作及美國留學。其後效力於多間財富五百強 (Fortune 500) 的跨國企業,期間取得香港科技大學工商管理碩士學位。選擇的路跟大衆無異。

自育兩女後,對兒童文學產生莫大興趣。毅然放棄高級管理職務,致力摘寫兒童故事。現於薩凡納藝術設計學院香港分校攻讀插圖,志願成為一位出色插圖師,為自己創作的故事繪圖,陪伴兒童成長。

林凱思於 2016 年出版首部英文繪本 “Checklisted Beauty”《清單美人》,深受小讀者和家長歡迎,為本地兒童圖書帶來新的思維,2017 再度出版 “My Best Friend Sunny”《我的摯友》,均登上兒童圖書暢銷鎊。

Libby was born into a home of a temporary resettlement estate in Hong Kong during the 1970s. With the love of her grandmother and the support from the government-subsidized education system, she was able to receive higher education and developed her different interests, including writing and drawing. After completing her master’s degrees in Psychology and Business Administration, Libby pursued a region-wide corporate career for more than 10 years until her first daughter was born. The life changing moment inspired her to start a career in creating children's books, through which she hopes to help young readers learn about self-love and the importance of developing their own talents. “Checklisted Beauty” is her first attempt in pursuing this new life goal, with more stories coming up in the pipeline. In 2017 Libby has her second book “My Best Friend Sunny”. Both of her books were on the best children book rank.

Libby currently resides in Hong Kong with her husband and their two daughters. She has been studying Illustration and Sequential Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Hong Kong.
