'This is a very special picture book for all ages. We are with the brothers all the way - on the last pages, holding our breath. A masterpiece.' ANN JAMES

'This beautiful book gives us the life we'd all love our children to have, out in the natural world, revelling in its beauty and truly being part of it. The exquisite illustrations are bursting with energy and colour, the language is rich yet simple and the brothers look after each other as brothers should. It really hits the spot, right in your heart.' ALISON LESTER
