Cress watercress

by Gregory Maguire | 01 September 2022
Hardback
A lavishly illustrated woodland tale with a classic sensibility and modern flair, from the author of the novel Wicked , which inspired the hit musical. Gregory Maguire turns his trademark wit and wisdom to an animal adventure about growing up, moving on and finding community. When Papa doesn't return from a nocturnal honey-gathering expedition, Cress holds out hope, but her mother assumes the worst. It's a dangerous world for rabbits, after all. Mama moves what's left of the Watercress family to the basement unit of the Broken Arms, a run-down apartment oak with a suspect owl landlord, a nosy mouse superintendent, a rowdy family of squirrels and a pair of songbirds who broadcast everyone's business. Can a dead tree full of annoying neighbours, and no Papa, ever be home ? In the timeless spirit of E. B. White and The Wind and the Willows - yet thoroughly of its time - this read-aloud and read-alone gem for animal lovers of all ages features an unforgettable cast that leaps off the page in glowing illustrations by David Litchfield.
