"Delicate and frail, tree began to grow.
Through the dazzling morning sunshine,
And drenching afternoon rain,
and the shaking of evening winds."
A Little Story About Big Things
This story is a response to losing my father. Very shortly after my father died my own son was born. I wanted to write something that spoke of this circle.
But it has become so much more - Matt has written some beautiful music and together with the Fremantle Literature Centre, WASO and Yamaha - “The sound of picture books’ was born. It’s a touring project where WASO and Yamaha perform the music - I read the story, and Matt discussed all the processes that make this such a unique event.
Check out the Lit Centre - or indeed WASO to find out when and where.
Tree: A Little Story About Big Things is my second book with Matt Ottley. It’s also the project that brought us together.
