Book details

The Gray Havens centers around husband and wife Dave and Licia Radford. Since their beginning in 2013, their projects have been described as "having a visionary quality that's both playful and enraptured." After releasing their debut EP in 2013, the duo has gained a steady following of listeners nationwide. They have a knack for creating a listening experience similar to paging through your favorite book, with richly textured compositions and multi-layered lyrics. Inspired by one of their earliest songs, the duo brings a familiar combination of color, playfulness, and whimsy to their first children s book, Gray Flowers.

This little book is based on the single by the Gray Havens and includes gorgeous illustrations by Forrest Dickison. Perfect for fans of the band or fans of colors!"

What People Are Saying:

"Dave and Licia Radford (a.k.a. The Gray Havens) are some of my favorite storytellers. I'm so glad this book is in the world."" -Andrew Peterson, author of The Wingfeather Saga

"The Gray Havens have a gift for painting colorful word pictures through their music. And now they take new form with this delightful picture book. Underneath the whimsical presentation is the beautiful and glorious new that graces changes everything. I loved this song when I first heard it, and now I am grateful to have it in book form to read to my children!" -Justin Taylor, blogger at The Gospel Coalition and managing editor of The ESV Study Bible

"Good art often turns things upside down so we can see them right side up. Gray Flowers upends the little Pharisee in all of us so that we remember what we did when Grace became flesh to give us beauty and make us beautiful." -Joe Rigney, author of Live Like a Narnian and The Things of Earth

I love the inventiveness of the story and the quiet faithfulness of the hero, who values the non-flashy (gray) over the proud display of color. The illustrations are lively, and having an existing song to accompany the book is a bonus.
