A lyrical love poem celebrating the very special relationship between parent and child. CBCA Awards shortlisted author Danny Parker's evocative prose is coupled with the wonderful detail of Ruth de Vos's artwork to create a heartwarming and comical portrait of familial love. Shine is a love song between a parent and a child, celebrating the beauty and joy of everyday family life, through mess and chaos and daily routines. Shine is also a story that seeks to find the beauty in ordinary things- the wonder of a lazy afternoon, the joy of being together. It is an attempt to put words to that spark of connection that we have with each other.
