Celebrating Kiki’s Wins in 2020 + New Releases for 2021

Kiki celebrates a great 2020 and looks forward to a creative 2021

I hope your New Year has got off to a good start and that all healthy resolutions are still being honoured!! We’ve got a long way to go, so you need to keep up the positive attitude!

As you probably already know, Kiki and Friends stories are all about positivity. While most messages recently have been about what a bad year 2020 was, we at Kiki headquarters are celebrating a year of achievements.


Kiki and her friends got totally jiggy with their creativity and knuckled down to business in 2020. Here are two examples of what they achieved:

1. Release of The Circus is Coming to Town for early readers available in all good bookshops and amazon

Do you recognise Banjo, Kiki and piero in their funny circus disguises? What on earth could they be up to now?

As usual Kiki is the one with the plan and inspiring confidence in all of us, but the story also explores the themes of

  • animal cruelty
  • working as a team
  • individual strengths
  • compassion

Visit Kiki’s website to see how this book can help raise awareness with your child to think of others less fortunate than themselves—and to believe more in their unique, individual strengths. Click here: More than just a fun story.

2. Plus, the trials and launch of the pioneering Kiki’s I CAN Journal for Kids for 4-8 year-olds available in all good bookshops and amazon

Kiki encourages an I CAN mindset because confidence opens doors, while self-doubt shuts them.

The main objective for the journal is to learn through fun… while picking up some good habits along the way, such as:

  • building self-confidence
  • strengthening self-reliance
  • building a positive mindset
  • nurturing a mindful approach

The kids didn’t even know they were doing it – they just had fun (remember when you were a child doing quizzes and puzzles? All that achievement helped you build your self-confidence).


Although Banjo may want to put up his paws and drink milkeo all day, Kiki and Dali intend to get busy with some more projects this year. Naturally they will call on the flamboyant flair of Piero to make them just as colourful and fun.


What you can expect from Kiki and Friends this year:

Adventure Stories for Early Readers

A Day at The Races – expected release date: 27 February 2021  
The Major – expected release date: 26 June 2020

Illustrated Rhyming Story for 0-5-year-olds

Kiki and Banjo Save Christmas – expected release date: 22 August 2021

Personally, I’m very excited about this second illustrated book featuring Kiki and Banjo … this one has been brewing for a long time. Time to get the drawing pencils out!

I hope you will find time to get creative this year, whether it’s painting or making your journal look pretty – we even get creative when we cook, organise and of course spruce up the house… and since we’ve been looking at the same 4 walls just a little longer than we may have liked to, why not try your hand at rearranging your living space, maybe liven it up with some new covers and vibrant plants to refresh your surroundings.
What we nourish our eyes and minds with is just as important as what we eat and the company we keep.

So open up a book to join Kiki and Friends, you’re sure to be in great company as you feast your eyes on the oh so cute illustrations and fill your mind with all kinds of positivity and inner victories.

I hope your 2021 is off to a positive start and continues to be filled with joy and fun.
