Eco Boy Book Signings by Lana Sultan


Lana Sultan with her young readers.

Saudi writer Lana Sultan came up with a novel idea (pun intended) to spread the message of caring for our planet among the young generation. She embarked on a project to write a series of books for children whose central character is Eco Boy, a young boy who becomes a green superhero to save his beloved planet earth.

“The Amazing Adventures of Eco Boy” is a story of a boy who becomes a green superhero. Saddened by the rubbish all around him, Eco Boy transforms his town to save his beloved planet earth.  Lana Sultan says, “The purpose of this book is to spread awareness about living a greener life amongst children in order to engrain certain positive habits at a very young age.”

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Lana on her upcoming book reading and book signing tour in Jeddah from the 18th to the 30th of December where she will be promoting the concept of going green to children through Volume 2 of “The Amazing Adventures of Eco Boy”. She will have a reading and signing at Little Book

and Enchanted Garden. She will also visit the following schools: Jeddah Knowledge, Dar Al-Hanan, Dar Al-Fikr, Dohat Al-Jazeera, Bear Hugs, and Rose Garden.

In addition to this, she is collaborating with the Young Initiative Group (YIG) to read the books to orphans.

Here is Lana’s upcoming itinery in Jeddah:
