One Button and the Sea

A poignant collaboration between author and artist, celebrating the importance of community and the power of hope.

'Grandpa, tell me the story again of when we went to sea.
That's a BIG story, One-Button.
How does it begin?
It begins with the uprooting . . .'

And so Grandpa tells the story of how he and One-Button and their whole community were uprooted from their everyday lives, and how they all had to take to sea in different boats. Sometimes the sea was dangerous and they were frightened, sometimes it was calm and they felt peaceful, sometimes they had fun watching films, singing and knitting…. But always they helped each other - and always they kept their spirits up together.

Until one day, the 'change' happened and they were able to return home and resume their previous lives ... different, but the same.
