Small Things by Mel Tregonning


A stunning graphic novel from an extraordinarily talented illustrator. On the cusp of having everything slip from his grasp, a young boy has to find a way to rebuild his sense of self.

‘The best art gives a voice to the voiceless parts of our lives, and Small Things does so with heartfelt precision.’ Shaun Tan

An ordinary boy in an ordinary world.

With no words, only illustrations, Small Things tells the story of a boy who feels alone with his worries, but who learns that help is always close by.

A universal story, told simply and with breathtaking beauty, about dealing with sadness, anxiety, depression, heartache or loss, and finding your way in the world.
