A moving picture book that celebrates family and belonging, from acclaimed screenwriter Irena Brignull.

A little girl wants to know where she came from and why she doesn’t have a father. When her mother cannot tell her, the girl decides to find out for herself. Her journey leads her on a quest through the woods, tracing her own story back to its source with the help of the animals she meets, until she discovers what truly matters in making a family. A timeless story with sumptuous illustrations, this picture book will be shared and treasured by all families whatever their shape or size. "A joy to pore over." The Irish Independent, Children’s Books of the Year
