Product description

A breathtaking tale of the rich, wild world and all its wonder from acclaimed nature writer and Costa Award-shortlisted novelist, Melissa Harrison – the perfect cosy autumn read!

‘Timely and magical, it will open the young reader’s eyes to the wonders of the natural world.’ NATASHA FARRANT

‘Each page brims with the wonder of our natural world, so much to learn but all a sheer delight.’ PIERS TORDAY

Three tiny, ancient beings – Moss, Burnet and Cumulus, once revered as Guardians of the Wild World – wake from winter hibernation in their beloved ash tree home.

When it is destroyed, they set off on an adventure to find more of their kind, a journey which takes them first into the deep countryside and then the heart of a city.

Helped along the way by birds and animals, the trio search for a way to survive and thrive in a precious yet disappearing world ...

The breathtaking children’s debut from acclaimed nature writer and literary fiction novelist, Melissa Harrison, author of All Among the Barley and At Hawthorn Time: shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and longlisted for the Baileys Prize.

Inspired by 1942 classic The Little Grey Men by BB, with shades of The Borrowers.

A tale of disappearing wilderness that couldn’t be more relevant in today’s environmental crisis, brought to life for children by three tiny, funny, eternal beings – the hidden folk.
