In this new edition of the classic picturebook for friends aged four and up, Kathryn Cave and Nick Maland explore how being friends with someone works and what it means to us. Lyrical text and wonderful illustrations open the way to talking about the times when life isn't easy - when we're lost in the wood, hurt, angry, shy, afraid of the dark. That's when we find out who our friends are and what friends are worth.
"A must for friends of all ages" Observer "Books like this remind us there's so much more to them than simply reading." Herald, Scotland "In a lyrical text, Kathryn Cave picks up on universal feelings of shyness, inadequacy, fear of the unknown and the need to be comforted. She also shows how friendship can survive an argument." Guardian
