Conversations with a Rock is profound, mystical, and beautifully illustrated modern Job tale, deep and light at the same time. With evocative images, and poetic text, Freeman let's his characters question our humanity and our responsibility: who got us into this mess on Earth and how can we manage to find a way out? A slow immersive read for these difficult times, a spiritual tale for young people and adults to reflect on and smile with. the perfect family book for the big questions about what, why, who? The images go perfectly with the words, Like a sacred text based on personal and global stories of how humanity came to be, a book that has skin like texture pages even and brings landscapes to life.
