Escape to the world of make believe where imagination takes flight.
This charming excursion to the world of imaginative play features poetic text accompanied by exquisite illustrations by a recent Italian Children's Laureate.
"Our hideaway is a house made of slender branches and singing leaves. No one can enter, except my little brother and I. Even though there's not much room, for us it has no limits. We can travel to the savanna or to snow capped lands, enjoy a five o'clock tea or sleep beneath the stars. Until we hear a far-off voice growing nearer as it calls to us . . . has someone found us in our hideaway?"
This timeless ode to creative play provides a welcome reminder to unplug from the distractions of the modern world, be present in the moment, and ready to travel wherever our imaginations might take us.

A beautiful tribute to nature. I was so pleased to find that this book speaks to people of all ages. As a child, this book is a reminder to go outside, play and enjoy nature. As an adult, it's a reminder to simplify our lives—happiness lives in the little things.
Such a sweet and absolutely unique story!!
The illustrations are so creative and inviting, they certainly kept me reading. The mystery of where the children's hideaway was located was refreshed my childhood memories. What a great way for adult readers to remember what it was like to be a child again. What a marvelous way for children to expand their creative sprits.
What a wonderful book!!! I would recommend to readers of ALL ages.
Grateful to have received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley & Red Comet Press.
