Nick Cave, frontman of the rock band Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, has broken new ground and written and illustrated a children’s book entitled “The Little Thing”. The origin and the story of the book has been described by him as follows:
“‘The Little Thing’ is a story I wrote for my three-year-old neighbour, Esme. I drew the pictures too, in case you’re wondering. It is the tale of a little thing that goes on an epic adventure to discover the true nature of its identity. ‘What am I?’ asks The Little Thing. Along the way it meets a cast of diverse characters – including a tomato, a toilet roll, a showerhead, a cupcake, and a corn on the cob, that guide The Little Thing toward its final joyous realization.”– Nick Cave
“The Little Thing” has been published by Cave Things and can be ordered via Cave Things’ online store. The purchase of the hardcover book includes a free download of the audiobook of “The Little Thing” read by Nick Cave and musically accompanied by Nick Cave and his bandmate Warren Ellis.
