In this empowering picture book by award-winning author Caryl Hart, one small girl inspires her whole village to plant a beautiful forest on the mountain. When a little girl's grandad shows her a picture of what the great, grey mountain used to look like, she can't wait to plant a new forest and for the animals to return. Although the girl soon realises growing trees isn't easy, she doesn't give up.

After many weeks, a little patch of green appears on the mountain and gives the whole village hope. Then, one day, a terrible storm comes tearing up the valley, destroying every single one of the girl's saplings. Has all her hard work been for nothing? Or has it inspired those around her to share her dream?In this lyrical and hopeful picture book, one girl's imagination, determination and positivity motivates a whole community to work together to create something amazing that will last forever.

With subtle addresses to the reader, children and grown-ups will feel empowered to tackle global issues such as deforestation and realise that, in the words of Greta Thunberg, 'No one is too small to make a difference'. This is an uplifting tale for our time, inspired by Jean Giorno's The Man Who Planted Trees, written by Caryl Hart, author of Girls Can Do Anything! (illustrated by Ali Pye), and with evocative artwork by Anastasia Suvorova. Perfect for fans of Amazon bestseller Somebody Swallowed Stanley and acclaimed picture book Greta and the Giants.

Caryl Hart is the author of books and series including The Princess and the . . .

and How to Grow a Dinosaur. She has won many awards including a Magnola Book Award, the Geoffrey Trease Prize for Children's Writing, the Oldham Brilliant Books Award and the Stockport Brilliant Book Awards.
