Product Description


"Mini Grey's beautifully illustrated story improves with each reading as the stranger's mission and legacy becomes more intriguing - is he good or bad? A lovely book to open up discussion with little ones who like a bith of depth to their bedtime reading" (Daily Mail)

"This is yet more proof of Grey's knack for telling stories with beautiful emotional depth. A reassuring read" (Junior)

"A quirky, life-affirming tale with a central message about the value of friendship and the importance of thinking of others. But what really makes this book is the beautiful, remarkably evocative illustrations. I found myself genuinely longing to share the characters' existence in their idyllic seaside home" (Guardian)
