Championing simple acts of kindness, this exquisite picture book explores the importance of friendship and the joy of giving.

The house across the road looks abandoned, but Rosie knows someone lives there. She decides to give her mystery neighbour a gift – something different, something unusual, something surprising. Something her mum would have been proud of.

Reviews

This is a lovely, subtle book about grief, healing and never judging a proverbial book by its cover. It will be loved by children aged five and up. 4 stars!
