Shadows can tell a story, yet they can also be scary, especially for children. What if the narrative ability of shadows was enhanced with a child’s vivid imagination to tell a bedtime story?

Shine is a children’s storybook that unfolds in the dark with a torchlight. When light is shone through or on the pages, shadows come alive to tell a heart-warming story. The theme revolves around parental love as shadows have the powerful ability to convey messages which are difficult to say in words. Through Shine, young readers see shadows in a different light, and go to sleep knowing how much their parents love them and hope for them to shine.
