A book for young and old with the handwriting of Zoi Andritsou

A special Children’s bookwhich combines children’s reverence for the magical holiday of Christmas with the concept of the consequences of every choice we make in life, hit bookstore shelves a few weeks ago.

That is the book “The price of Christmas» by Zoe Andritsou, illustrated by Spyros Zacharopoulos Michalis Sideris publications.


It is her first book Zois Andritsou, but not her first story. To date, dance educator and choreographer Zoi Andritsou has written numerous fairy tales and stories that form the basis for the dance performances she choreographs and stages.

In a dance-theatrical manner, the first presentations of the book took place in Patras (at the Orofos Theater in collaboration with the bookstore “Gonia tou biblio – Papachristou Bookstores”) and in Pyrgos Ilias (at the city’s conference center in collaboration with the bookstore “Gonia tou biblio – Papachristou Bookstores) instead of the bookstore “Lexis Bookshop”). Hundreds of Lilliputian readers, but also older “children”, experienced a special interactive book presentation that took them far away, into magical and dreamy worlds. In worlds where imagination confronts logic and laughs at it evilly! Sheet music, musical instruments, lightsabers, gloves, microphones, posters and magic dots flooded the room, while children’s laughter and enthusiastic participation made the interactive presentation of the book unique!
