A very special book for us


This is a special book for us as we stayed in RCH for a number of months. I love how the book takes you on a beautiful and imaginative journey, rather than focusing on the conditions of what the children must be experiencing. Like another reviewer said, all the proceeds go to the hospital. Highly recommend it to support a great cause.



I did buy this product three times


As a memorial gift to a great grand daughter this book has become part a a book loving family collection with special meaning for four generations.

Beautiful book for a great cause


This is such a beautiful book by two of my favourite kids authors. It's a wonderful collaboration with the young patients at the Royal Children's Hospital and I love that the proceeds from the book end up there.
