Following feedback from previous posts, we are aware that many struggle with the very idea of a book without words, but for us, this creates all sorts of endless possibilities.

There may not be a rigid storyline or pre-prepared narrative, but this invites the reader to make up their own version of events. Try it, it can be truly liberating!
