It arrived and its everything I wanted. I finished the book wishing there were more pages, which is a good thing. There's and second (available) and third volume (still being produced) that I will have to add to my Christmas wish list (one is never to old for a Christmas wish list ;)).
Not only do you find yourself marvelling in the wit, humor, sadness, or beauty that can be packed into a few shot lines but best of all it stimulates your imagination and creativity. I'm feeling the urge to use my next nap time to see what tiny stories I can create.

Beautiful tiny moments, Baby and Daddy. (my personal photo please ask permission before using)
Which is why I'm intrigued by 'The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories' by Joseph Gorden-Levitt (whom I love as a actor). I stumbled across it when looking for something completely unrelated on the book depository and after reading several reviews I'm now waiting for it to be delivered. This is what the book depository had to say:
In December 2010, hitRECord self-published the first volume in the "Tiny Stories" series. The collaboration received over 2,300 contributions, from which Joe and the creative collective edited together 32 illustrated stories. This volume in the "Tiny Stories" series will contain all new material created through the same collaborative process on hitRECord.org as directed by RegularJOE. "The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories" is the first book in a current 3-book partnership between hitRECord and It Books.
A collaboration of art and stories, sounds amazing. Amazon reviewers further perked my interest by talking about the amazingly emotive effects that a few short lines and an incredible image can invoke. Once the book arrives in my hot little hand I'll let you know if it lives up to my expectations. However the concept alone, makes me love Joseph Gorden-Levitt just a little bit more!
FYI This is the associated website. I confess I haven't perused it yet, my child is a cat napper, the fact I am able to write this post without entertaining a 10 week old at the same time is a miracle in itself!
