The Story

A clever picture book on the creation of a story and how difficult it can be to capture it on paper, about how it originates as an idea in the author’s mind and becomes a finished story that eventually belongs to the reader. We meet a writer who is fed up with sitting alone in front of a blank sheet of paper and who goes out on the street hunting for inspiration and an adventure. People soon start following him, excited to see if he will find his story.

‘«The Story» is a wise and slightly absurd tale of how a story is created. (…) The book is superbly crafted with its consistent design and top quality illustations.’
