Hollywood animator Raman Hui has created a story book to raise funds for the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation.

Grandma Long Ears, which revolves around a rabbit and her grandmother, is Hui's third collaboration with skin and hair care products manufacturer Kiehl's.

Hui says the book is dedicated to all grandparents and parents for the love and care they provide to children.

Hui, a Hong Kong Polytechnic University graduate, was the supervising animator of the Hollywood blockbuster Antz, and the chief animator of Shrek and Shrek 2. He is currently working as a co-director of

Shrek 3.

In the past two years, he has created Brownie & Sesame and Picollo to raise funds for the HKSKH St Christopher's Home and the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, respectively.

Grandma Long Ears is available for HK$80 at Kiehl's shops, Cat Store, Chococat Cafe, Dymocks, Kubrick, Mooncat Cafe and One Fine Day.
