The Hidden Life of Things

A boy runs up a hill. He is certain that at the exact same moment someone else is running up the other side, and that he will meet that person at the very top.
The Hidden Life of Things recounts a boy’s search for the unknown world that lies behind everything we can see. Do people have memories from before they were born? Do animals talk in a language we do not (or no longer) understand? And where do we come from? It turns out that there is someone who can answer these questions…

Two-time golden pencil winner Daan Remmerts de Vries has written, and also illustrated, a quirky, poignant parable about life on earth for people of all ages.
