Edward comes from a long line of archaeologists but no matter how hard he looked, he never discovered anything. However, all it takes is one remarkable night to change all that. Armed with his new discovery, Edward does his best to look after and care for it but it just doesn’t seem to work. So Edward heads to his favourite museum where it seems he will make the most important discovery of all.

In this gorgeous collaboration between Rebecca McRitchie and Celeste Hulme we learn that sometimes things are not quite what they seem. Sometimes it’s when we take time to look a little more deeply, we learn what is really important.
