This is the story of a girl and a boy and a lake. The girl wants only to impress her mother, and finds the perfect challenge to prove herself. The boy suffers a tragedy, becomes fixated with a lost memento and makes it his mission to find it. The water is where, one day, the two will meet. Cormorance is a story of an accidental encounter, an unbreakable bond, and the redemptive force of connecting with the natural world. A wordless, purely visual story, it is - like any work by the award-winning Nick Hayes - a book of the utmost beauty, and a wonder to hold in your hand.
