A story about facing your fears and finding your strengths
Maple lives in a tree house in the woods. She’s scared of most things, especially the animals who live below. But one day, when she bravely steps out of her comfort zone, she finds that the animals are really quite kind. With their help, she awakens a sense of bravery she never knew she had.
This is a gentle, Jungle Book-like adventure, where our doll-like heroine ultimately returns to her tree house stronger, more confident, and with a whole forest of friends.

The watercolour illustrations have an unrefined aesthetic that adds to the homespun, off-grid atmosphere of Maple’s world…It’s a sweet message for our young daughters to experience.

Cutely illustrated, the story of Maple and her home in the sky will appeal to those who like to be by themselves, who crave time out, but also know that they cannot live by themselves, that we all need others to survive.
this delightful story is well supported by Chloe’s detailed and colourful line and watercolour illustrations. These will delight young readers as they look deep into each page to follow Maple’s encounters with her new friends in the forest who help her to grow
