A father hands his son a book. This, he tells him, is something that is far more precious than gold and jewels. It is more than just a story - it is their story and their people’s story. It is something that must be treasured and protected.

Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood bring us a moving tale of a boy’s journey and his dedication to the protection of the treasure entrusted to him by his father. Once again, Margaret Wild has produced a rich and thought provoking tale, one that has been exquisitely illustrated by Freya Blackwood.
