That One Green Tile

By

Loved it! 😍

An unsolved mystery sparks an endless journey of imagination that lasts a lifetime.

Synopsis

Imagine there is someone in the world who looks exactly like you. Where does this person live? What would it be like if you met face-to-face? Does this person think of you as well? This childhood curiosity eventually became the inspiration for That One Green Tile which is a rhyming, melodic children’s book in which a little girl is propelled into a journey of the imagination. In her mind, she visits locales from Spain to Japan, visualizing this other girl in her familiar surroundings and asking the most musing questions. At the end of the story, readers are reminded that for all our similarities, each one is unique. And for all our differences, we share the same sky.

In a world where a girl has a mysterious double, the imagination is sparked. Where is this mysterious girl? Where does she live? What does she dream of? And who is she? In this mystical journey of dreams and discovery, possibilities are endless. The world unfolds around the little girl who dares to muse on the mystical workings of the universe. And after all is said and done, it is up to the reader to decide where this journey of discovery will end.

In this gorgeously hand-illustrated book, let your imagination take flight as you travel the globe with the power of thought. Each page is painstakingly illustrated with felt art, and the love that went into the story resonates with every turn of the page. Though we may never know the answer to the questions the little girl asks, the spark of countless worlds can begin with this uniquely illustrated book. Not a story for a reader who likes a concrete conclusion, this tale is open-ended. The mystery begins a truly endless cycle, and it is up to you, the reader, to decide what you make of the vast worlds that inhabit our imaginations.

This book is an excellent choice for readers who want to be challenged, and who want to see possibilities they hardly dare to dream of. Perfectly child-friendly, the intricate illustrations are sure to inspire your little one to try new art of their own. This is not a book that spells out its conclusion, so be certain that your child is ready to experience a book with no concrete ending. This is a book designed to open up the possibilities of "what-if", and it is up to the reader to answer the questions within. However, That One Green Tile is a book full of magical potential, and could inspire your child to one day write their own story.
