The Search for Silva- Illustration 5: Cindy and Sam meet the mice
The Search for Silva is a children’s sophisticated picture book in the genre of an armchair treasure hunt aimed at promoting empathy and compassion for animals.

Readers join Sam, a welcome swallow, as he journeys with Silva’s mother Cindy on her desperate search for her baby. On their travels they meet other animals and learn of their experiences. A prize awaits the first reader to work out Silva’s location.
