About the Book and Author
This gentle, loving story is about friendship. It demonstrates how even the best of friends experience ups and downs at times. No journey is even entirely smooth but with efforts to reach a mutual understanding a deeper harmony can be achieved. The accompanying artwork by David Litchfield is magical and dreamy.
A happy band of friends journey together, but dark clouds threaten their friendship and they lose their way in a story that starts in the safety of the happy and familiar, then goes on to explore the difficulty of discord and hurt; what it means to lose and find peace again; the bravery it takes to be a peace-maker; and the jubilance that peace ushers in.

I really liked this book because of the way the words rhymed
Winter: I really liked this book because of the way the words rhymed and there were lots of colourful pictures of people animals trees and seasons. When me and mum spoke about what the story was about I said, it was about being happy but when someone isn’t nice to you it can hurt your feelings. I liked reading this book with mum as the end reminded me being with mum.
Mum: A warm, colourful book sending the message of what happens when you are negative towards somebody or something. The illustrations were beautiful throughout the whole book. And aimed at the right age the message is clear, written in rhyme and short amounts of text on each page were just enough, to encourage talks about people’s feelings. A lovely read.
