A Tiny Tale

Every single person on this planet has creativity in them in some way or form. As to what it is that inspires us and causes this creativity to come out in a particular art form is one of the greatest mysteries of life. But sometimes something as simple as an entrancingly illustrated book can do it. A Tiny Tale is very likely one of those muse-like books for many creative people.

The story is an unusual journey for a character who steps out of his already unusual life and takes a path not taken to something new and different. It is inspiring and encouraging on many levels. The story will very likely have different meanings and resonances for different readers and appreciators of art. But its going to hit you strong and move you.

A Tiny Tale is not simply a book, but a work of art. On the right are the varied, complex and colorful words; on the left is breathtaking artwork that sometimes illustrates the writing, sometimes compliments it, and sometimes takes it to a whole new level. Each page is special and the reader will be taken away on their own journey as they enjoy the journey of the main character.

A Tiny Tale is not a children’s book, but it’s also not an adult’s book; it is a book for everyone! Each reader will find different things to enjoy and love, as well as question and perhaps even be angry at. It is a book you may read one way one year and completely different a decade later. It is a story to cherish and read to others, but also to selfishly enjoy over and over.
