Journey to Ska City
The Adventures of Yomi and Deji
by Written and Illustrated by Michael Bonnick
Join Yomi and Deji on their first of many Limited Edition bedtime adventures to many worlds deep with Super-space.
Journey to Ska City was inspired by my two wonderful sons. Their daily adventures, fascinating minds and boundless energy, are a constant source of creative inspiration and amusement for both my wife and I. As an Industrial designer and Fine artist, I've always loved children's books and knew that one day, I would write my own children's stories.
Being a father is the most fulfilling and rewarding experience I have ever had; this book and those that will follow, is my way of saying thank you to my children for enriching my life. They have given me the creative spark I needed to write and illustrate, this, my very first children’s book. Enjoy, dream, create.
