What Is This Picture Book About?
Outside, the world is bursting with colour, light and wonder. But inside the house, Daddy has a big secret. A dark shadow is following him around, and it just won't leave him alone.
From the park to the breakfast table, Daddy's shadow continues to threaten and overwhelm him. Jokes aren't funny to him anymore. He won't come out to play. His sunshine has been stolen, and there's no telling when it will come back - that is until a particularly driven daughter shines her brightest lights into the dark.
Effortless and enchanting poetry, combined with otherworldly watercolour illustrations, this powerful and uplifting book is for anyone who has ever been overcome by sadness or witnessed the dark shadow of depression take hold.
Above all, though, it's for those who know that love and support can make all the difference.
Who is this book for?
One in four adults will experience mental illness at some point in their lives. Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses, but also one of the most misunderstood - and often, invisible.
For children, depression can be confusing, sad and a little frightening. Children often (mistakenly) believe that they are the cause of their parent, grandparent or carer's sadness. This beautiful book shines a light on the illness that affects so many of us, and helps little ones understand it in a way that is meaningful and accessible to them.
