Synopsis

An utterly delightful bedtime tale.

'The third book by Mem Fox and me, a rollicking, colourful journey and adventure.  Lots to look at on every page, the two main characters travel from the cavernous caves to their home in the castle walls.  I’ve been describing it as Where is the Green Sheep? meets Where’s Wally?, if you can imagine that.  But luckily you don’t need to imagine it, I’ve drawn it for you.' - Judy Horacek
