Mini and Milo help children gain much-needed skills such as conflict management and resilience skills.
Story-led, with humour and heart, this series follows the adventures of Mini and Milo as they navigate friendship and all its ups and downs, such as competitiveness, managing inner voices, learning to listen, and communicating effectively.
The Teeny-Tiny Voice is the perfect book to share with your child to learn how to master our inner voices and the skills for POSITIVE SELF-TALK.
Mini has a tiny house, a tiny bedroom, and a tiny best friend who dreams of being a magician. She also has a big secret – she hears a tiny invisible voice that sometimes causes big trouble. Mini realises that just as she has rules to follow, she just might be able to set some for her own invisible mischief maker, turning anxieties into affirmations.

Natashia Curtin grew up in a Yolngu township in the Northern Territory, and completed high school while living in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. She always had her nose in a book, or was drawing pictures - because computer games weren’t invented yet, and it was stinky hot outside. She moved to Melbourne in the 1990s to study graphic design and learned how to live in a big city. While working as a graphic designer, Natashia met and married a lovely man, and they had two boys (who don’t draw, because computer games were invented). She likes boogie-boarding, listening to music and hanging with friends. She promised to barrack for Collingwood in her wedding vows. She hates rockmelon, rap music and bad paragraph spacing.
The Teeny-Tiny Voice is the first in a brilliant new series for children about emotional and social intelligence.I especially liked the way Mini’s voice was shown as a smaller, kind of invisible version of Mini herself, just a line drawing, while the real Mini and Milo and other elements of the story were in full colour. I loved The Teeny-Tiny Voice, and look forward to reading more of Mini and Milo.
