About the book and the authors

Written by Anthony Bertini, with illustrations by Jennifer Goldsmith, it shows the silver lining in every dark cloud. Bertini himself explains the project beautifully:

“This book will offer hope. It will be free to everyone in the world to read and enjoy as many times as they want. Yes, it is a children’s picture-book, and the story reflects what we tell our children every day: happiness can be found in simple things. But it is more than that. It is something we tell ourselves in times of hardship and worry. It is a story that helps all of us remember what is important."

Where Happiness Hides offers us, through simple and succinct storytelling, a reminder of how these moments of happiness can be found.
