Christina van Straaten is a mother of two young boys and graphic designer with a background in book layout and corporate design. After experiencing the joy and excitement of the boys on their first visit to a game reserve, the idea for the book “Liam goes to the game reserve” was born. With a visit to the local bookstores, Christina found that there were very few books for children on this topic. She started with a concept and consulted with other parents on what their children enjoyed in a book. Shortly afterwards “Liam goes to the game reserve” and “Liam gaan wildtuin” toe was born and sold more than 1000 copies in the first year.
