One day, the Thing falls from the sky and four strangers stumble across it. Together they decide to work together to take care of the Thing. But before long a media circus builds up around the creature they are protecting and the debate about the Thing spreads far around the world. What is the Thing? Who does it belong to? What does it do? And is it any use for anything at all? This captivating picture book will be many things to many people: a story about thoughtfulness, an adventure in friendship and an intriguing and gentle social commentary on the search for meaning in modern life. Daniel Egneus' unique and engaging artwork beautifully illustrates this enigmatic story and brings the strange Thing to life. With a similar feel to Alexis Deacon's Beegu and Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing, this is the perfect bedtime story for children and adults to enjoy together.
