About the Book

The Hero Story is a book about stories, the journey that every protagonist goes through to become a true hero. This is an interactive picture book, with action prompts to engage young readers and make it fun with every reading. This story is retold using a minimalistic art style to draw attention to the broad patterns of these stories, allowing readers to recognise how they play out in books or films they have come across. On one level, it is a light-hearted jab at the universal story sequence and a teaching tool for anyone who wants to come up with an 'original story.' At its deeper level, it is a positive lesson for all children to encourage them to take the first steps they need in any challenging situation, to overcome them and grow so they can learn to realise the hero of their own story.
