Can a young boy find fire for his family—andbring it safely home? An exciting, nearly wordless picture book adventure as visually compelling as a Pixar short.

After a hard rain douses the family fire, a brave young boy sets out to search for more fire to bring home before the cold season sets in. Along the way, he’ll face many challenges, from perilous mountains to fearsome predators to raging rivers, and find something wholly unexpected: a friend. In his picture book debut, artist Logan S. Kline crafts a dramatic tale inspired by prehistoric times and told almost entirely through stunningly detailed illustrations. “Finding Fire started with the sketch of a small boy holding a torch and grew from there,” he says. “A lot of research went into creating the art for this book, yet the look of the boy changed very little over time as he was inspired by my children, from my younger son's wiry frame to my elder son's wild hair that goes in a million different directions.” This gorgeous adventure story just begs to be visited again and again, with each perusal promising new discoveries.

Finding Fire was a very unique read for my children and I.
There is little to no words in the story. More like a brief explanation in the beginning, as a "how we got here" type of thing.
It was a neat experience to read this with my kids and have them tell the story by looking at the illustrations.
I rather enjoyed the illustrations, my children felt they were a bit washed out, or drab, at first until they got further along in the story.
I had flashbacks to The Never Ending Story (you know the part), when the little mammoth got stuck in the tar pit. Thankfully, Finding Fire had a happier ending.
Finding Fire is a fun and insightful adventure that I'm happy I got to experience with my kids.
