A breathtakingly beautiful book which, like Shaun Tan's The Arrival, will move and delight readers of all ages. 'Reading this book is like being quietly ushered into another dimension by winged strangers, a place beyond the tread of normal earth-bound language. Ephemeral as a feather, timeless as a rock, and as true as both, Unforgotten is a magical experience.' - Shaun Tan

Nobody knows where they come from.
But they come.
Impossible birds of the big sky
and the long night...


So begins this timely and timeless story, told in magnificent images and words by master storyteller, Tohby Riddle. A triumph of quiet beauty.

    Comments about Unforgotten:

    The theme is well known, angels that fall on Earth, how they protect us, etc. Beautifully illustrated, a book to be kept as a precious thing on the shelf, and to be read again from time to time. Read it my 11 year old boys, enjoyable.
