A Good Place

By Lucy Cousins
Illustrated by Lucy Cousins

Follow four adorable insect friends on a delightful adventure that invites young readers to consider what they can do to help make our planet a good place for all living creatures.

Four insect friends are looking for a place to live – one that has flowers for Bee, leaves for Ladybird, a pond for Dragonfly and dead wood for Beetle. But – oh no! – with dangers all around, a good place is not so easy to find.

The story has a gentle, environmentally-conscious message that brings the natural world to joyful and vibrant life for young readers, inviting them to consider what they can do to help make our planet a good place for all living creatures.

  • A funny, vibrant and poignant story celebrating the beauty of the natural world and all its creatures.
  • Encourages young readers to consider the loveliness of the world around them and be kind to our planet.
  • Features a new, rich colour palette from award-wining author-illustrator Lucy Cousins.
