The Yellow Bus is an emotional story of making a difference in someone's life, even if it's just for a brief moment or a small kindness. I've listened to the audiobook, but at the end the author explains the process of creating this story, inspiration and why he did the art this way. I want a physical copy as soon as possible. Sounds beautiful.

Henna is... so many awesome definitions to explain what Henna is, more than I thought of, but in the end, it's a major one: Identity. Worth going through each page and take a moment to see what Henna description is connected too. A simple gesture of friendship, a birth celebration, nature, color... art...
