As a young girl, Kala dreamed of writing books for children.  Her dream got side-tracked by a hunger for adventure that sent her spinning around the world, working in international relations and experiencing life in different places.  Kala’s diagnosis with breast cancer in 2018 prompted her to remember her childhood dreams, and she started writing again. 

Pink Punk Mum, based on her own journey with cancer, is her first book.

Mum has a special sparkle.

   She is kind.
      She is fun.
         She is brave.

But one day I came home from school and found Mum crying and our world turned upside down…

This is a story about a young child whose mum is diagnosed with cancer.  

Together they navigate the side-effects of her treatment as the family shower her with the best medicine they can possibly give... love and lots of laughter.

“A gem… A blessing and an aspiration to a mother & child connection during tough times. A real story for everyone to cherish in their hearts… Well done…” Donna, Indie Book reviewer

About the Illustrator: Babie Alexandra Pulga

I have always been drawing for as long as I can remember. Even until now, you would always find me in moments of peace and quiet, being immersed in my own magical and adventurous thoughts through reading books, creating music, and drawing out of my own imaginations. I've always looked for ways to share my talent and skills and its opened opportunities for me to join local poster contests and competitions since 2016. I later became an Editorial Cartoonist and Chief Cartoonist in a local High School in Cavite, Philippines. And now, I am bringing my skills, experience and technical prowess in the field of Children's Book Illustrating!

With inspirations from love, family, friendship, magic and adventure, my illustrations prove there are no limitations in creating a visual narration to rich imaginations.
