Big Sky Mountain
Big Sky Mountain by Alex Milway
The author/illustrator of Hotel Flamingo returns with a new series set in a land of wild adventures and relatable animal characters. Rosa has come to live with her Grandmother, the formidable Grandma Nan (inspired by the author's grandmother). Nan seems a little unwelcoming and the ways of the mountains are hard to learn, making Rosa a little nervous. But the pair soon warm to each other as Nan teaches Rosa about life in the mountains and Rosa shows she can be brave and resourceful, particularly when it comes to sorting out territorial disputes between beavers and hares. My favourite animal character was Mr Hibberdee the bear, who will trade pots of honey for stories. Ideal 6-8 years.
