“Sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to and things go from bad to worse”
A small, red leaf follows a young girl through her day, where she feels alone in a dark and surreal world. It appears on each page, hidden somewhere in the image. The reader is navigated through her fragmented and complex emotive landscape with frank and evocative language and illustrations, which perfectly express the inexplicable. After a challenging day of difficult thoughts and feelings, the girl returns home to discover the red leaf waiting for her. The leaf blossoms into a beautiful red tree and ends the story with an uplifting symbol of hope, renewal and inspiration.
