A beautiful picture book about believing in yourself from the author and screenwriter Irena Brignull, with sumptuous illustrations by Richard Jones.

A little boy dreams of a world beyond the farm where he lives – a world full of mountain ranges, oceans and cities, where he could do anything. But one day he plants a seed from which doubts start to grow. Instead of thinking of all that he could do, he thinks more of what he could not. Can he overcome his fears and chase his dreams?

  • A heart-warming, timeless story that inspires us to believe in ourselves, from the same author and illustrator pairing as The Child of Dreams.
  • The second picture book from Irena Brignull, whose screenplays include the Oscar-nominated The Boxtrolls and an adaptation of the beloved classic The Little Prince.
  • Richard Jones’s profile is on the rise. He illustrated the recently released Our Planet, the official children’s companion to the David Attenborough documentary series.
