Longlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award

A new fable that goes full circle as it explores the value of possessions against values of friendship and fun. This story offers lots for children to think about and learn from, illustrated with jazzy patchwork pictures in a style that they might like to try out for themselves.

Synopsis

Bottle of Happiness, A by Pippa Goodhart

Pim and dog Tiddle went over a mountain, and found a rich market place. Pim asked a man, Please may I eat one of those beautiful fruits? What will you give me in return for the fruit? said the man. I haven't got anything, said Pim. There must be something that your people have that we don't, said a woman. Pim looked around. I think we have more happiness than you have, said Pim. Bring us some of that, then, said the man. But how can you bottle and transport happiness?
