By Nik Perring
Combining brevity with an overarching narrative, Nik Perring’s unusual storytelling is touching and captivating. His Beautiful series follows the lives of Lucy, Lily, and Alexander through their words, trees and shapes.
In the first of the series, Beautiful Words, fact and fiction interplay within the context of their three lives.
Accompanied by rich, playful illustrations from Miranda Sofroniou, these 26 story-gems invite us into Alexander’s world, telling us of his love, his loss and some of his favourite words too.
Beautiful Trees and Beautiful Shapes, the second and third books in the series, are due to be released later in 2014.
Playful, subversive, poetic and smart, Nik Perring's stories are gems. Every one of them.
Beautiful Words was created using our new online editor Bookimbo.
