About the Book

Book Twas the Night

‘Twas the Night

Written and Illustrated by Marin

Ages 5 | 36 Pages

Publisher: Fontreal | ISBN-13: ‎ 9781775378792

Publisher’s Synopsis: ‘Twas the Night is the only wordless children’s book in the 2GETHER picture book collection. The setting is dark, urban, and the streets are sprinkled with Christmas lights. A boy in a wheelchair finds an injured white dove on a sidewalk and brings it home. The entire book has no other people, cars, or creatures. This reinforces the uniqueness of the two protagonists and adds a dream-like atmosphere to the publication.

One of the illustrations shows a framed picture of Peter Pan’s shadow on the mantle, and readers realize the boy’s dream: he wants to fly with the dove. ‘Twas the Night is a real Christmas wonder that encourages readers to apply their own imagination, verbalize their own feelings, and interpret their own emotions while following the illustrations. The subliminal message? Dream big.

‘Twas the Night is a remarkable book in which dreams and reality mix, and imagination takes flight – just as the dove and the boy in the wheelchair do.

Marin Self Portrait

About the Author

A long time ago, Marin was a child. He was one year old when his father passed away. His mother remarried and Marin was raised by his loving (but strict!) grandparents. He learned to read and write long before he went to school. Books became his imaginary parents and his fictional friends.

Marin studied nuclear physics, art, and literature. He owned an advertising agency for many years.
Oh, a few more things: he does not drive, he does not drink carbonated beverages, he had never consumed food from fast-food restaurants, he does not have a mobile phone, he had never used legal or illegal drugs, and he had never visited his GP (much to the disapproval of his wife). He started his small publishing house FONTREAL (children’s picture books), in 2016.

Marin lives with his family on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean – in St. John’s, NL, Canada.
