Illustrated by Robert Starling

Paperback / softback

Description

Shortlisted for The Little Rebels Children's Book Award 2020!There 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 the Geese have hatched a plan to leave the farm... will life be perfect for them 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. 'The Little Island eloquently illustrates the pitfalls of isolation...
