A collection of nine absolutely charming short stories about friendship, dancing, memories, and lots of cake, all set in a wonderful world created by the author. This delightful title contains a forest, a river, an ocean, an oak tree and lots and lots of animals and of course a world of imagination where anything is possible. These wonderful whimsical animal tales are perfectly complemented by Jessica Ahlberg’s delicate illustrations in this collection of lyrical stories that will captivate readers of all ages.
