Annotation

Elderly Amelia Ellicot lives alone, next door to a block of flats. She loves her garden and her chickens and wishes she could show them to someone. The people in the flats have moved to the neighbourhood from various countries. Looking down on Amelia’s garden they wish they too could share Amelia’s garden. When a terrible storm destroys Amelia’s garden, her neighbours come to her aid and so begin friendships and belonging in this moving picture book.
