‘Enchanting, touching, full of lightness and wisdom’ Carlo Rovelli

From the bestselling author of The Fox and the Star, a spellbinding clothbound fable about searching and hoping, and how the smallest moment can be beautiful

Deep below the earth, Worm dreams of having more space. There's not much room down there.

Above, Bird waits, through sun and rain and wind.

As the day goes on, will they both find what they are looking for?
