It is not uncommon for children to bicker with one another but how much is too much? In her new book, “The Nothing Story,” Alice Namm tells a quirky tale of four young brothers who have nothing better to do than argue with each other.

The story begins with a “Once upon a time” but this is no typical bedtime story. Alice introduces a relatively ordinary family. There is nothing special about the four children in this family, except the fact that they argue constantly. Everything they did and everywhere they went, they fought. What are they quarreling about and why is it so important?

Accompanied by delightful illustrations and brimming with universal truths, “The Nothing Story” is a whimsical parable of people who are about to discover the really essential things in life. This will prove to be a great choice of reading material for parents who want to make storytelling as meaningful as it is entertaining.
