A Present for Rosy

By Jonathan Emmett
Illustrated by Polly Noakes

A beautiful and heart-warming tale about the importance of friendship.

Rosy and Rory are the unlikeliest of friends. They are as different as the sun and the rain. Rosy is a dainty, delicate little bird and Rory is a big, burly bear. They both love to explore together and between them they always find the most wonderful things. One day, Rosy doesn't feel like leaving her nest and Rory can't understand why. They stop exploring together but Rory never stops looking for wonderful things to share with his friend ... until he finds the perfect thing. A sensitive and timely book about the importance of friendship.

  • A modern fable that subtly weaves the subject of mental wellbeing through a charming story of friendship.
  • A touching and uplifting story, perfect for sharing.
