Inner is about a young girl on her journey to question the universe about the secrets of life.
The questions she poses to the universe, “Is there any kindness in the world? I’m looking for kindness,” can only be found and answered from within herself. She continues her journey around the world, questioning trees, animals, plants, and water. Each time, the universe answers back to the little girl, “Go Inner.” At the end of her journey, she builds up enough confidence and wisdom to understand that she can simply look within herself to find all that she needs. She is so happy to have found this powerful secret of life.
With dreamlike, whimsical illustrations, this is a reaffirming, joyful book for everybody that will transform readers’ minds to what truly matters.
