What weabout it
This vividly illustrated book is about the power of story. An instant hit, this cinematic tale was adapted into a short film.


Our main character lives for stories, for books, for words. But one day a powerful storm comes and literally turns his life upside down, scattering his pages to the wind. What happens in the face of this loss?

Life goes on, which is to say the story continues. This story is an ode to narrative, with lushly illustrated scenes that take on a life of their own.

It’s powerful, deeply human and proof positive that whether we experience stories on the page, on the screen or by hearing it told, they are gifts we carry within us.
