It’s at Large
Set of 3: 30.5 cm x 28 cm
This project involves a children’s book targeting kids around the age of five. The story is inspired by ‘tiger parents,’ a term referring to parents who adopt an authoritative parental style by making strict demands and being oversensitive. In the story, the protagonist Nick escapes from Mrs. Monster’s custody and goes on an adventure in the Miracle Woods inhabited by pickled creatures who lead tutorial classes.
My project aims to convey the message that special talents can make children competitive, confident and joyful. However, in the story, although Nick is talented in making magical origami, Mrs. Monster believes that it is a meaningless practice. So, Mrs. Monster chases Nick around and forces him to attend tutorial classes held by the pickled creatures living in the woods. Instead of encouraging Nick to develop his talent, Mrs. Monster prefers Nick to fulfill a general standard of wellbeing by learning more. Nick rebels against Mrs. Monster by escaping from those courses with the help of his magic origami, which conveys the message that talent can also be powerful.
