Another exhilarating adventure in the great outdoors, from HOTEL FLAMINGO author Alex Milway
Welcome to Big Sky Mountain: a home for everyone!
Life never stays still for long on Big Sky Mountain. Rosa and Grandma Nan are off on an adventure to Toe-Dipper Bay, to see who’s in trouble – a distress flare has gone up! When they arrive they find the beach covered in plastic rubbish, and a family of beach otters farming seaweed, while doing their best to tidy up. Rosa and Grandma Nan join in, but they have to find out who sent the distress flare – because who is that wrecked out at sea? Rosa and Grandma Nan will need the otters’ help to build a raft to get to them . . .
An action-packed story featuring curious otters, wise hermit crabs and peckish puffins ,which addresses pollution and recycling in a gentle and friendly way for young children.
Funny and charming; Alex Milway has made me want to fly right into Big Sky Mountain myself. ― Andy Shepherd, author of THE BOY WHO GREW DRAGONS
I want to go to Big Sky Mountain! It’s the rugged wilderness, but much softened by a comfy bear who’s a travelling salesman, a moody architect hare and some busy builder beavers who still have to learn about how to get along with the rest of the community. ― Sarah McIntyre, illustrator of PUGS OF THE FROZEN NORTH
This is a perfect, big-hearted adventure story, with pictures and laughs on every page and an environmental message delivered with the lightest touch. Once you have met the wonderful cast of talking animals, warmed to Nan’s peculiar ways and found your feet in the wilderness, like Rosa you’ll never want to leave Big Sky Mountain. ― Clara Vulliamy
As a HUGE fan of feisty grandmothers I LOVED Grandma Nan in Big Sky Mountain! Wise, capable and fearless she is the perfect role model for her granddaughter Rosa. A wild adventure with an important message, bravo! ― Sophy Henn, author and illustrator of BAD NANA
