Waterstones Says

The Waterstones Children's Laureate demonstrates his magical storytelling skills once more in this delightful compendium of tales comprising a mere ten words each and illustrated by a range of fantastic picture book artists.

From Joseph Coelho comes a compendium featuring twenty brilliantly illustrated tiny tales, each only ten words long!

Is it possible to spin a tale using just ten words? It most certainly is! In this unique and magnificent compendium designed to spark the imagination, Joseph Coelho brings us stories of underwater worlds, demon hamsters, bears in outer space, and portals to places unknown ... all in just ten words!

Each tale has been paired with one of the finest illustrators working today - and, together, the words and pictures will create a space for creativity as young readers imagine how the story might unravel. They might even be inspired to pen a ten word tiny tale of their own!

Prefaced by a note from Joseph Coelho, and with two creative writing challenges at the back, this is the perfect gift for all those ready to unleash their imaginations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Coelho crams whole worlds into his 10 words but also exhorts his readers to fill in the gaps […] for the right child it will open doorways into new worlds. Give this to your kids and they’ll hopefully be inspired to start telling you stories from the prompts provided at bedtime. - The Independent, syndicated via NewsChain

It’s never too early to jump-start your literary career, and Ten-Word Tiny Tales, the latest book by Joseph Coelho, offers a crash course in the art of creative writing to children as young as seven. - Emily Bearn, The Daily Telegraph

“In this playful, unsettling collection for 7+, Coelho’s ultra-concise tales, featuring broken hamster cages, underwater carnivals and bears in outer space, are amplified by images from Shaun Tan, Dapo Adeola and many others, inviting kids to dive through strange portals of imagination. - Guardian

Young readers who enjoy creative writing will find plenty of inspiration in Ten-Word Tiny Tales by Joseph Coelho and Friends […] A variety of illustrators - including Alex T .Smith, Yoko Tanaka and Shaun Tan - is an added confection for this original compendium, which will have children pulling out their notebooks to write their own tales. - Irish Times

If you have a child at home who loves using her or his imagination, this is the perfect book. […] Great fun. - Irish Independent
