It is wartime. In the midst of the fighting and devastation, an unusual friendship is formed. A delightful and poignant story that touches on humanity and unexpected friendship in times of war. At the heart of the story is a little bantama character children will instantly warm to. The talents of best-selling author Jennifer Beck and prize-winning illustrator Robyn Belton are beautifully combined in this poignant story of friendship and survival.
