The Crown of Secrets, the first book from tavinjer, is a massive illustrated collection of stories for children, adults, and everybody else. A mixture of short and long, informative and inspirational, fanciful and nostalgic, this oversized picture book will be a welcome addition to any home.

The stories are suitable for readers of all ages, levels, and interests, and the pictures will carry every imagination to new places.
