An inspiring, thought-provoking picture book about finding your way in the world from the award-winning creators of The Great Bear and An Ordinary Day.
As the voices in his life crowd in on him, Thomas looks for another way. Powerful illustrations and a spare text make a parable of Thomas's journey, which reflects the courage we all need to find our passion and be ourselves.
A masterful and compelling story.
