The creator of this picture book tells us (in the video below) that his Chines grandmother (a painter) and his English father (a teacher of philosophy) taught him that to make a great piece of writing or a good drawing, two of the key ingredients are boredom and solitude. This book suggests that he would add to those ingredients, a good dessert now and again.
With a strong message of interconnectedness, hope and empowerment, This Small Blue Dot follows a little girl exploring the big and small things in life. From contemplating our place on this ‘blue dot’ to the best Italian, Chinese and Indian desserts, the book provides a broader, more inclusive view of who we are, where we come from and where our dreams may take us.
