The Great Realisation

Harper Collins recently approached Pocko and Nomoco for an exciting project, that we can finally talk about! Youtuber poet, TomFoolery, asked Nomoco to illustrate his latest publication – ‘The Great Realisation’! 

First performed online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tomfoolery’s heartfelt poem, ‘The Great Realisation’, with its message of hope and resilience, has been viewed over 60 million times, translated into over 20 languages. Its message of positivity capturing the hearts of children and adults all over the globe.

Written in the form of a bedtime story, The Great Realisation is a celebration of the many things – from simple acts of kindness, to applauding the heroic efforts of our key workers – that have brought us together at a time of global crisis. It has captured, with magical resonance, the thoughts and feelings of millions in lockdown, as we adapt to a new way of life, find joy in unexpected places, cast aside old habits and reflect on what truly matters to us.

The Great Realisation is a story for any reader, young or old, who dares to dream of a brighter future – of a fairer, kinder, more sustainable world. It is a timely reminder that, even during our most challenging times, there is always hope.

Back in September 2020, British dance troupe Diversity performed a powerful BAFTA-nominated routine inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement which aired on primetime television.
