Archie has something to say, but no one is listening. So Archie leaves home … and discovers someone else with something to say. And because they both know how that feels, they both listen.
This is a quirky story about being who you are (even when you’re not), by Zanni Louise and with illustrations by the inimitably wonderful David Mackintosh.
