By Gemma Koomen.
This is a beautiful book, currently in hardback with a lovely matte finish. It is also the authors first book and she should be rightly proud of her achievement. The story concerns ‘tree keepers’, little folk who live a tree essentially and a young girl who befriends a starling. There are wider themes of friendship and belonging which all pay off nicely in the end. The illustrations are gorgeous. All earthy and with real heart. Anyone who loves nature will adore this book.
