The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Vol. 1
Disclaimer: Spoilers. Kind of. I think. They’re not really spoiler spoilers because they don’t give away much. I sort of allude to stuff. You know what this ain’t my struggle; I’ve read the book already, you should too.
Made from a collection of short stories, often only a few lines long, The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories is indeed ‘tiny’ but the ideas in it are not. Each story is accompanied by illustrations which reignited my forgotten love for a good picture book.
I will admit I wanted the book to be longer. That would, of course, undermine the book’s title but I’d happily overlook that inaccuracy. In all honesty, I found no faults to speak of*.
- As the collection is so short I was able to read it in a matter of minutes. This made me feel better about myself as I’m normally so slow at reading.
- I admire how witty, smart and well collated the stories are. The illustrations tell a story in themselves that only strengthens the story’s narrative and they’re super cute. This book shows the people involved in the project are indeed very talented.
- Another thing I love is the fact the book is a collaborative work from Hitrecord users. It’s wonderful to see writers and artists tell stories without having to say much at all. Consequently, I have a new found appreciation for short stories.
- Lastly, there are two more volumes, both of which I look forward to reading. It’s great knowing if they could always make more books to add to the series because of the books format.
With that I sign out with my favourite line which stirred my interest in the series:
*There was nothing to sass.
