Small Things is a beautifully illustrated children’s book which debuted in September 2016. 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.

The creator Mel Tregonning, passed away after a sudden mental breakdown in 2014. Mel's family insisted upon completing the work, thankfully with the remarkable creative direction from artist Shaun Tan, who completed the essential final illustrations.

A reprint was required shortly after the release and publishing rights are currently being sold across the world. Small Things has made a great impression with educators and mental health professionals due to the teaching potential for raising awareness and promoting mental health conversations amongst youth and families. There are high hopes for Small Things to place in the children's picture book awards for the year.
