Pepsi-Cola (Thai) has collaborated with illustrator Priyasri “Naamnoi” Promchinda in launching the “Wholeheartedly Connected” picture book to honour His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his devotion to the Thai people.



The book brings together nine illustrations with a poem featuring the late King’s humble attributes and talents namely Devotion, Humbleness, Patience, Self-development, Gratefulness, Sportsmanship, Self-sufficiency, Simplicity, and Compassion. Inspired by the “Connect the Dots” game, each illustration allows recipients to take part in drawing pictures of the “Father of the Thai nation” by simply connecting the heart-shaped dots.

A total of 9,999 copies of the “Wholeheartedly Connected” picture book will be given away to the public free of charge. Those interested can get a copy of the picture book at a booth located in front of the Bangkok Art & Cultural Centre (BACC) on October 21 (5,000 copies) and October 22 (4,999 copies) from noon to 6pm. 

During the event, visitors can also view the original illustrations in colour and draw pictures of the late monarch by connecting the dots on a touchscreen in the mini exhibition area, on the first floor of BACC from 10am to 9pm.

For those who miss out on a paper copy, the picture book is also available for free download in PDF format at https://goo.gl/mhECQ4
