Small Things “makes achingly attuned use of chiaroscuro” says The Horn Book Magazine

June 1st, 2018

Cover: Small Things Author: Mel Tregonning Publisher: Pajama Press“In this wordless story told through paneled graphite art that makes achingly attuned use of chiaroscuro, a boy is having a hard time—not the kind many picture-book kids have en route to finding a problem’s clear-cut solution, but an enduringly hard time….One hopes this book will reach children who relate to the boy’s plight and anyone who, like the boy’s sister, suspects that a loved one is in pain and needs help.”
—Nell Beram
