The Heart of the Bubble

Trace Balla

Mum and Dad have been busy working and travelling around the world, but now they can’t do that anymore. Confined at home with their daughter Bimbi, the family find themselves cooking and gardening more, meeting with their community, and ultimately becoming more engaged with the world around them.

From award-winning author Trace Balla, this graphic novel set during the coronavirus pandemic is the touching tale of a family’s awakening to what really matters.

“It has the feel of an urban fairytale - yet it’s exactly what we’re living through.” - Erica Wagner   


Beloved graphic novelist for children, Trace Balla, has created a heartfelt comic about all the good things that can happen as a result of coronavirus. A family readjusts to being at home together all the time and finds creative ways to express themselves by cooking, gardening, and getting to know their local community.

With lots of creative ideas for passing them time during lockdown this gorgeous, self published book is perfect for families with kids aged 5-12. What a beautiful gift Balla has created for us during this challenging time!
