"These two books — Who Killed Snowy? / Kdo zabil Snížka? and Best for Everybody / Nejlepší pro všechny — do and do not belong together. Each is and is not a part of the other, as a child is and is not a part of his parents. And as the book-child and book-parent gradually give up their stories, we come to understand that these are neither two separate stories nor the two halves of a whole. It is difficult to explain. But it is like one hand taking another," says Tomáš Baldýnský, journalist, actor, film producer, script writer and Petra Soukupová's co-worker and life partner about her latest works.
At first, Who Killed Snowy was published in October 2017 — Petra Soukupová wrote another extraordinary story for young readers, this time with a detective twist. At the beginning of December 2017, the ''adult'' book Best for Everybody appeared at book shops.
Two well-known artists collaborated with Petra Soukupová on these twin books: Tereza Ščerbová and Martin Pecina.
Tereza Ščerbová is an artist and illustrator whose work has twice won the Zlatá stuha [Golden Ribbon] award — in 2015 for her illustrations for Cracks / Škvíry by Marka Míková (Argo, 2014) and two years later for Kooki / Krtník (Host, 2016), a book she wrote herself.
Martin Pecina is one of the most distinctive and highly regarded Czechtypographers, and a frequent domestic and international award-winner.
