Children’s favourite comic characters make for perfect
face mask companions to SIBF 2020

Sharjah, November 11, 2020

For the youngest crowds arriving at the ongoing Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF 2020), keeping their face masks on at all times is no problem at all. Thanks to their creatively designed face masks,  featuring their favourite characters from comic books and popular culture.

From the all-time classics of Hello Kitty and Mickey Mouse, to relatively new pop-culture entrants like Kungfu Panda, and Iron Man for the slightly more grown-up gentry, the choice of character each young visitor is sporting on their face mask offers a unique window into their personalities, cultural influences and even their literary preferences.

Happily posing for pictures when requested, these young readers and cultural enthusiasts are setting an example of safe and responsible social behaviour for everyone in the UAE during their visits to SIBF 2020, which goes on until Saturday, November 14 at Expo Centre Sharjah.

Pre-bookings for fixed three-hour visits are required, and can be done at
