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.
