The Kingdom of NOTHING


Text: Ronald Wohlman

    “The various graphic layouts sometimes place emphasis on the characters emotions, sometimes focus on the visual scenery (characterized by a starry sky and a full moon). A feeling of wholeness accompanies the reader and facilitates contemplation. The book is an ode to spontaneity, simplicity, and to the long-forgotten art of doing nothing. Its tale about nothing is nevertheless filled with possibilities.”

    Marie Fradette, Le Devoir


    “Here is a book that carries a very strong message, showing that doing nothing at all can really be something! A reading experience to offer as a gift [...] which highlights the importance of appreciating present time and each moment one spends with his own family!”

    Rachel Cournoyer, J'enseigne avec la littérature jeunesse


    “A simple, elementary reading of this picture book can be done on one hand and it will be very fun for the little ones. On the other hand, this work can be seen as a philosophical fable and can thus be addressed to older children. It is a reflection on our basic human needs, on love, on communication... It highlights our ability to appreciate what we have, to marvel at the beauty of the world.”

    Marie Barguirdjian, ArtStramGram
