In the great forested heights of the Himalayas, a great many species live peacefully... but their lives are changing forever as humans cut down the trees that these creatures call home.

When Pip and her mother realise they are no longer safe in their familiar forest, the two red pandas embark on a journey to find the Bamboo Path, where they might find a new home. But the long road ahead is full of unfamiliar places, hidden dangers, and something neither Pip nor her mother has ever seen before: a bustling city. This tale of perseverance and determination also highlights the plight of the animals whose homes are destroyed by deforestation.
