Description

The Amazing Tree.
Hard cover children's book
6x6"
22 pages

This is my new self-published children's book for young ones aged 1-3.
The story is set around a tree, always in the same place, in the same basic shape. But on every page there are different things, creatures, colors, seasons, around the tree, making it constantly different and changing. Yet, the solid shape and position of the tree is always the same.
The story is told in rhyme, 4 lines or less to each page, which keeps the young listener/reader's attention throughout.
Please see the trailer for more info and a closer look and read the longer story of how the book came about below:

(the long story ;)
In March 2016 I was lucky enough to be traveling in Europe with my partner and the almost 2 year old daughter. We stayed for almost a month in a beautiful Tuscan villa in Italy which looked out on a gorgeous wide open garden.
The idea came and inspired by the look of the trees around the area in view of our temporary home, I started painting and writing.

The story is simple, I wanted to write and paint for my own 2 year old to understand and enjoy, so i painted familiar creatures and objects, different each page, but set to a stable, unchanging scene of a single tree. Always in the same place, always the same basic shape.
As i wrote and painted, the meaning became clearer to me. There are ever changing factors in our life as there are always some unchangeables. The play of these two is really interesting to me. The colors, the seasons, the relations, the things, they change, yet it's all set somehow against a backdrop that is firmly in place and remains a stable back drop for it all.

These are the ideas behind the images and words explained [as I see them anyway ;)] I don't know what of exactly translates into the mind of my little daughter, but when we read the book and it comes to the end, she says 'again!' and that is the best response i can hope for!
