Smriti Prasadam-Halls & Robert Starling
Hopes for Our Little Island

There was once a farm where all the animals were friends. Together, they looked after the farm and each other. It wasn’t perfect and they didn’t always agree (animals almost never do). But they liked it. One day the geese begin to gossip. Before long, they hatch a plan to leave the farm. Will life be perfect now? Join author Smriti Prasadam-Halls and illustrator Robert Starling as they introduce The Little Island, a powerful modern-day fable for our times told with humour and warmth, and most importantly, hope. A story of building bridges not barriers, respect not resentment and of finding friendship, not fear.
