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.
Julia Hubery was born in Stamford and trained as an architect. She loves the countryside and nature, finding it a pool of inspiration to draw on in her writing. Julia now lives in Gosport with her husband and three children and hopes one day to get back to doing pottery – once her children have all grown up! She has published 16 picture books, translated into many languages, including When Granny Saved Christmas, A Little Fairly Magic and That’s What Friends are For.
James Munro has been drawing since he could grasp a pencil. Since then, everything in his path has fallen prey to his doodles, from books and magazines to films and animations. He lives and works in a pile of pencil shavings and spilled ink in Liverpool. James’ ambition is to one day have a shed like Fili’s father.
