There was once a farm where all the animals were friends. Together they looked after the farm and each other. It wasn't perfect and they didn't always agree (animals almost never do). But they liked it. One day the geese begin to gossip. Before long they hatch a plan to leave the farm. Will life be perfect now? A powerful modern-day fable for our times told with humour and warmth, and most importantly, hope. A story of building bridges not barriers, respect not resentment and of finding friendship, not fear.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I love it. This is a great way to try to explain our current political situation to little kids... the overall message is hope and the power of togetherness which is a lesson that many adults could do with hearing." * Dom Joly *
"Animal Farm for our times...This book, with its hopeful ending, is a little island of sanity in the rising tide of insanity around us. I hope it will have many readers and start many conversations... hopefully before all the bridges are torn down completely." * Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo *
"There is humour and warmth, and the bright illustrations will really appeal to even the youngest readers. The message here is that compassion for others and strength in togetherness is what makes us thrive. The Little Island may raise as many questions as it answers, but that's precisely why global ideas should be introduced to children at such a young age." * Book Trust, Books We Love *
"An elegantly written fable about division, with serious soul." * Sally Phillips *
