A story of hope for us and our planet
Travel the globe in this beautiful, inspiring journey through the animal kingdom, which encourages children to value the natural world and their place within it. From two of today’s most celebrated children’s book creators.
From a blackbird in a Devon garden to leopards in the African savanna, hibernating bears and chimpanzees high in the forest canopy, this stunning picture book reminds us all of our connection with nature, and with each other, and the urgent need for us to join together in caring for the planet and every creature in it.
Former Children’s Laureate and CILIP Carnegie Medal winner Sir Michael Morpurgo’s beautiful story is both moving and full of hope; the illustrations from twice CILIP Kate Greenaway-winning Emily Gravett are breathtaking. This gorgeous book is a classic in the making and the perfect gift for any animal and nature lover.
