A bird's eye view. Drawing of a red haired child, wearing a long stripey scarf, entering a shadowy forest.

by Yijing Li


A child is lost in a dense dark forest, searching for something. And then, they find Emptiness. Emptiness suggests they search for something together. As they plunge through the trees they come across familiar, discarded objects. Soon the child is rushing around collecting memories and objects. The forest becomes a sunlit meadow. And Emptiness, suddenly, no longer seems able to keep up. An exciting debut book by a UK-Chinese artist who specializes in hand-drawn pencil and watercolour illustrations. ‘Very clever, very beautiful story of healing’ (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, LL reviewer). ‘A lovely, thoughtful and unusual look at feelings of emptiness and loneliness’ (Kerry, Letterbox Library Staff). Age 4-7, Hardback 24pp
