A story for all ages from the author of the #1 bestselling Born a Crime
“What will we find in the uncut grass?” “It depends on what we’re looking for.” In the tradition of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse comes a gorgeously illustrated fable about a young child’s journey into the world beyond the shadow of home, a magical landscape where he discovers the secrets of solidarity, connection, and finding peace with the people we love. Infused with the author’s signature wit and imagination, in collaboration with visionary artist Christopher Myers, it’s a tale for readers of all ages—to be read aloud or read alone.
