A story about making friends and getting used to a new life.
Addy is settled in a small town in rural North Lincolnshire. She has one husband, three children and six stick insects.

Addy enjoys walking up hills, reading, cycling down hills, talking to her family and friends and picking blackberries.
"Artwork is in a sensuous painterly style with the hues reflecting the emotional tone, and Siddharth's ethnic origin ... Lush visual effects include jungly overgrowth, which springs up in the most unlikely places like the classroom and playground, as the borderline between fantasy and reality successfully merges" -- Jane Doonan The School Librarian "This attractive book is the warming story of a lonely child, new to a cold rainy climate, who loses the precious toy elephant that is his confidant ... A must for our schools and homes" Children's Books Ireland "A heart-warming story of a little boy and his comforter" -- Paula Roberts Bournemouth Daily Echo
