Review: The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories 3

November 14, 2013

Tiny 3

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, wirrow, and hitRECord are back with The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 3 and I think it just might be the best Tiny Book yet!  Just as its title suggests, at 4.25 inches by 6.25 inches, this is a small book, perfect for the car or your purse.  Each two page spread is a complete, illustrated story that is only a sentence or two long.  Don’t let that fool you, though.  With gorgeous illustrations and thought provoking stories, this is a book to linger over and savor.  Over 35,000 artists submitted work and the work of 82 of them have been published in this gem of a book.  The proceeds are divided between hitRECord and the artists whose work was selected.

When this book arrived, I immediately sat down to read it and I just loved it.  I lingered over the illustrations and thought about the meanings of the stories.  I’ve flipped though it two or three times since then because it’s the kind of book that begs to be picked up over and over again.  It would make a terrific gift or stocking stuffer.

    I was going to listen to the trailer, but it seemed to bother my dog! This looks like it would be a good gift.

    I’ve never seen these little books at the bookstore, maybe I walked by them because they’re so tiny … LOL

    Your review and the book trailer sold me!

    I love these books. I have the 3rd one and will be reviewing it soon. My daughter loves how portable they are. I was lucky enough to get all of them sent to me so far so if there is another volume I hope I get that one too.
