Written by debut writer Avital Balwit, illustrated by Alexis Deacon
When young biologists Jayla and Gerald are trapped in a tank with Frazier, an intelligent octopus, something astonishing happens, in Avital Balwit’s tale about curiosity and kindness to animals.
One of four winners of Pop Up’s 10th birthday writing competition, debut writer Avital Balwit’s That Thing suggests that our indifference to other animals also reflects how we treat each other. Award-winning illustrator Alexis Deacon’s watercolour washes bring this brilliant short story to life.
