Three tiny, ancient beings - Moss, Burnet and Cumulus, once revered
as Guardians of the Wild World - wake from winter hibernation
in their beloved ash tree home.

When it is destroyed, they set off on an adventure to find more
of their kind, a journey which takes them first into the deep countryside
and then the heart of a city.

Helped along the way by birds and animals, the trio search for
a way to survive and thrive in a precious yet disappearing world

The breathtaking children's debut from acclaimed nature
writer and literary fiction novelist, Melissa Harrison, author
of All Among the Barley and At Hawthorn Time:
shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and longlisted for the Baileys

Inspired by 1942 classic The Little Grey Men
by BB, with shades of The Borrowers.

A tale of disappearing wilderness that couldn't be more
relevant in today's environmental crisis, brought to life for
children by three tiny, funny, eternal beings - the hidden folk.
