Description

On a tall hill, in a tall house, lived a tall man and a small mouse... From Mara Bergman and Birgitta Sif, creator of Oliver and Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance, comes an enchanting new story of friendship and teamwork; a modern fable of little and large. All day long, the Tall Man does tall things that need doing, like picking apples and untangling swings and fixing all the broken things. But, one day, the huge town clock simply stops to TICK and TOCK and DING! Whatever will the Tall Man do? However hard he tries, he just doesn't have a clue! Perhaps now is just the right time for the perfect little friend to come along?
