EVERY BRILLIANT THING
A joyful experience chronicling the lengths we'll go for those we love.
You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. Every Brilliant Thing shows us how to achieve hope by celebrating the small wonders in life and chronicles the lengths we’ll go for those we love.
