Ola the Seagull in Amsterdam
A brave, inquisitive seagull travels with you through the pages of our book series – her name is Ola. She has visited all of the most interesting places in Amsterdam and knows where to find the best fish. Ola loves to glide on the air currents high above the city along with the other seagulls.

And of course, she is a very quick-witted gull. She recently learned to beg for food from the sellers at the patat stalls. Ola loves patat and often uses this trick when she needs food to regain her strength.

Our Story
This book was created by two artists, Alina and Katya. And we are completely in love with Amsterdam. In this book we tell stories about how Amsterdam was built and who lives there, what the people there eat and how they move around their city. Our illustrations are done in black ink so that they can be coloured in.

What Colour is Amsterdam? It depends on how you're feeling and the pencils you have. You can travel to different cities by plane, by boat or by car. Or you can use your pencils and the stories in our book.
