At the edge of the woods, there is a great tree. Peep through the branches and you might just see some little people who stand as tall as your thumb and have heads the size of hazelnuts.
Sylvia prefers to be alone rather than play noisy games with the other Tree Keepers. But one day, she finds a baby bird in her favourite hiding place. As Sylvia and the bird become friends, can she learn that sometimes, things are better when you have someone to share them with? This beautiful debut is a tribute to community and friendship.
Sunday Times Children's Book to Watch Out for - This charming debut picture book is about tiny people who live in trees, a baby starling and the joys of nature and of making friends. It is illustrated with a naivety that is both elegant and child-friendly.
