A rabbit and bird set off on an adventure. They choose a path, explore the unknown, pretend and play and imagine—and finally return, wiser than before. Their journey has taught us that both a hum and a cry will bring comfort when we’re lost, that we should keep curiosity and adventure in our pocket, that the sky is always above us, and that all the paths we take will join to lead us home.
Perfect for anyone embarking on a new chapter in their lives, this tribute to all that is important in the world around us encourages readers to live life to the fullest.
