Writer, mum. Coffee lover @mammaknowssouth
In light of RUOK? Day, if anyone you know has ever suffered from depression, loss or anxiety, they should read this graphic novel.



Small Things is a story told solely in extraordinary illustrations. It's about a young boy who is on the verge of loosing control and needs to find a way to rebuild his sense of self. He is just an ordinary boy who feels alone in the world, but soon finds out that help is always close by.

The author Mel Tregonning, has been a published cartoonist since primary school, and in 2006 she won the international Illustrators of the Future competition.

Mel began illustrating the graphic novel in 2008, expressing the universal feelings of loneliness and hopelessness. Sadly, in 2014 Mel took her own life.

After a lot of work, together with Mel's family, illustrator Shaun Tan completed the final three illustrations and Mel's book was published in August 2016.

The story is told with amazing beauty and deals with sadness, depression, loss, and about finding your way in the world.

Mel's drawings are truly phenomenal and really encompass the feelings of sadness eating away at a soul.
