An enchanting and magical story of kindness, from the highly regarded creator of Blue Kangaroo.

When Bella opens her front door and finds an other-wordly, little stranger on the doorstep, her life changes forever! Cold, hungry and lost, the only word the stranger can say is ‘Toot!’, so Bella and her children, name him Mister Toots, before giving him something to eat and a comfy bed. Soon Mister Toots becomes a much-loved member of the family and neighbourhood. But one terrible day, he disappears into the sky… Will anyone ever see him again?

Beautifully illustrated, this poignant, moving story about the power of kindness and compassion, and accepting and welcoming others, will touch the hearts of adults and children alike.
