A modern classic set against the backdrop of the London Underground, this is a timeless story of friendship, family and noticing the little things in life. When eleven-year-old Edie Winter finds a mysterious box on the London Underground, she goes straight to take it to her father, an employee of the London Underground Lost Property Office. But on her way, Edie is amazed to discover that the box is home to a family of Flits - tiny winged people. And these Flits - Impy, Speckle and Nid - need Edie's help. Not only do they need supplies (rice crispies, sugar sprinkles, digestive biscuits and raisins) and someone to look after them, but their brother Jot has run away and they need Edie's help to find him. With delightful black-and-white illustrations by animator, cartoonist and illustrator Joe Berger. Perfect for fans of THE BORROWERS, HARKLIGHTS and MRS PEPPERPOT.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A charming story in the tradition of The Borrowers about little flying people, visible to only children, who live in the Underground and are found by a rather unhappy 11 year-old girl. * Sunday Times *
A fresh new tale. [...] Edie is a lovely character [...] it is great to see a female lead driving the story on and we should never underestimate the value of children seeing girls in this way. An enjoyable read that teaches us that looking closer can lead to adventures galore. -- North East Teacher * The Great British Book Worm *
