'Weaves belonging, identity and self-worth in a beautifully moving story,' Hannah Gold, author of The Last Bear

'A captivating, beautiful story ... will bring joy into the hearts of many, many readers' Sophie Anderson, author of The House With Chicken Legs

The animals of Greenriver are in danger. Can Sedge and Silken find their way along the river to each other in time to save their home? A gorgeously illustrated adventure story that readers aged 8+ will treasure.

Last spring, the otters' home flooded. Now the water is high again.

Young otter Sedge believes he can save his holt from another flood - but he has to be brave enough travel downstream for help.

Downriver, the beaver lodge is also at risk. Silken - who is too small and weak to do the work needed to strengthen the beavers' dam - feels something calling her up the river.

As the two animals unknowingly swim towards each other, they are drawn to the spirit of Greenriver, who takes the form of a snow-white otter, Lady River.

But will Lady River hear their plea for safety?

From million-copy selling Holly Webb comes a modern classic - a gorgeously-written epic journey about two animals and their against-the-odds journey to find each other. Perfect for fans of Pax.
