The second in the series of Little Thing books for children written and illustrated by Nick Cave.

These collectible hardcover books were printed for Cave Things by the monks at Denmark’s Narayana Press.

Every purchase includes a download of the talking book, read and soundtracked by Nick Cave.

In The Little Thing Is Sad, the little thing wakes up unhappy, and the usual cast of friends suggest ways of making it less sad…boy, do they get it wrong! In the end, the little thing must go and ask the thing that lives in the cave, who of course has the remedy!
