The Heart Of Thomas is a deceptively deep book that's both beautiful and heartbreaking. The story line has no clear pro or antagonist and changes with every page turn.
The book is a story about a boy's quest of love and innocence after another boy's death at his school and the boy's note
A raw book that you'll find yourself rereading and decoding, The Heart Of Thomas' stunning illustrations and compelling is truly an incredible find.
