PVP MEDIA is proud to celebrate the contribution of our friend and partner Peter Viska on the re-release of Ms. Opal Lee’s famous children’s book, Juneteenth: A Children’s Story. This new edition features a multitude of all-new, bespoke, hand-drawn illustrations by Peter that perfectly reflect the heart-wrenching story of Juneteenth.
Juneteenth: A Children’s Story is an engaging story that introduces the history of slavery and freedom to children in words they can understand. The book aims to educate young Americans about their collective history.
Peter Viska has illustrated over 40 children’s books and is perhaps most famous for his illustrations of the iconic Far Out, Brussel Sprout series. He is a three-time winner of the Australian Cartoonist Association’s Stanley Award and also creates and produces animated television series for children, including PVP MEDIA’s very own Jar Dwellers SOS.
