What Wild & Wonder loved about this book:
The ending is just amazing. The book brought out a powerful message about how we are always are always looking out for something better "the grass is always greener on the other side", yet, only when we lose something that we've always had, then we realise that the most important thing we want was what we already had all along. Besides Oliver Jeffers, we have a huge soft spot for David Litchfield's books.
