Caretaker’s daughter Fili is sad to see her city neighbours hustle in and out, too busy to talk. But will feeling sad help – or is a bit more imagination needed? Fili gets to work creating a mysterious something that just might build little bridges between them all.
This is a brilliant story of community and bringingpeople together with a delightful twist at theend which has already received a lot of high praise from reviewers and bloggers.
Mary Esther Judy of FallenStar Stories has said 'Quirky illustrations in expressive line and a limited palette work hand-in-hand with this tale of friendship, imagination and resilience. Encouraging, creative, with a strong sense of community and fun.'
Book Read 2 Day even told us that the book features 'The most fabulous illustrations I have ever seen!'
We're so pleased to have the book so well received and can't wait for it to get into the hands of readers.
I love this book- the illustrations & the message. Open ended mystery!
I’m recommending it everywhere & through the FCBG Children’s Book Award.
