Story and Truth has been self-published by the wonderful travelling children's book shop 'How Brave is The Wren'. The book came to be after owner Jenny Moore heard storyteller and theatre-maker Ian Douglas tell the tale at the Just So Festival.
The tale: Story is a young man who travels the world meeting new people and being welcomed into their homes, Truth is a wise and elderly lady who carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. When the two meet, Truth asks why it is that she is never welcomed into people's homes, Story doesn’t know why, but he does know that people will always welcome a Story if it is well told.
Printed in a run of 1000 copies, this fantastic children's book has been beautifully illustrated by shop favourite and Anorak/Dot illustrator Ben Javens. We've been lucky enough to grab a handful of copies signed by both Ian and Ben and here they are!
