Loved by one and all, this book pulls no punches. We see the grief of our heroine as she sees her special secret place, with its wealth of wild life, fall to the bulldozers, but we also see how she herself can create another secret place to encourage the wildlife back into her own garden. Julia Draper's illustrations capture the hard and soft sides of wildlife inhabiting the secret place as well as the aggressive power of the machinery. It's a book of hope which, with no soapbox stridency, gently reminds us that we all have a role to play and can have an effect.
