Children’s Paradise 兒童樂園
Lo Koon-chiu founded the full-colour children’s comic book Children’s Paradise in 1953 in the capacity of both editor-in-chief and artist, thus becoming one of the first-generation illustrators in Hong Kong. Original and refreshing, his comics sought inspiration in everyday life and aptly reflected the local social culture and children’s interests in those days. With the aspiration of fostering good morals and temperament in children, he set his hopes on changing society with a childlike innocence, maintaining that art can serve both to educate society and to realise the “beauty of life”.
Children’s Paradise Press was also distributed in Malaysia and Singapore.
The issues shown here – #42, #496, #540 were published in 1954, 1973 and 1975 respectively.
