- About the Author
Recommended for kids 3 and above!
Shadows can tell a story, yet they can also be scary, especially for children. What if the narrative ability of shadows was enhanced with a child’s vivid imagination to tell a bedtime story?
Shine is an award-winning children’s storybook that unfolds in the dark with a torchlight. When light is shone through or on the pages, shadows come alive to tell a heart-warming story. Inspired by Wayang Kulit - a traditional form of puppet-shadow play found in parts of Southeast Asia - the theme revolves around parental love as shadows have the powerful ability to convey messages which are difficult to say in words. Through Shine, young readers see shadows in a different light, and go to sleep knowing how much their parents love them and hope for them to shine.
The gift set comes with the Shine Book, the limited-edition gift box and a USB-rechargeable LED torchlight.
Shine was awarded with Good Design Award 2021 (Japan), DFA Design for Asia Award 2021 - Bronze Award (Hong Kong), Golden Pin Design Award 2021 (Taiwan) and iF Design Award 2022 (Germany).
