  • Another exquisite, clothbound tale from Coralie Bickford-Smith... [her] illustrations are so vivid and patterned, reminiscent of traditional African wax prints, that each page feels alive. The night-time stars and fireflies sparkle, though there's no glitter or foil used, while elsewhere the text swoops bird-like across the page

  • Depicts nature at its most majestic and tells a lovely fable about belonging

  • Never have the woods looked more beautiful than in this exquisite new fable about growing up, exploring the world and understanding where you belong

    Angels and Urchins Magazine
  • Heart-warming . . . a celebration about the world around us and the importance of the natural world at a time when we need it the most

    Creative Review
  • Wonderful, poetically told . . . beautifully designed on the page to match the spirit of the words, tells of the importance of shelter and its power to encourage confidence and tolerance as well as empowering development and independence. The interdependence of the bird and the tree in this story is a beautiful telling of a universal theme
