The little island
Nominated for the 2021 CILIP Kate Greenaway MedalThere was once a farm where all the animals were friends.
Together they looked after the farm and each other. It wasn't perfect and they didn't always agree (animals almost never do).
But they liked it. One day the geese begin to gossip. Before long they hatch a plan to leave the farm. Will life be perfect now?A powerful modern-day fable for our times told with humour and warmth, and most importantly, hope.
A story of building bridges not barriers, respect not resentment and of finding friendship, not fear. 'A helpful book for discussing Brexit with young children' GUARDIAN
