When a branch from her beloved tree snaps off during an icy storm, a plucky girl refuses to let it be hauled away. Her neighbour, Mr. Franck, says it’s full of potential. So with imagination and spirit (and Mr. Frank’s help), the girl creates something whole and new out of the broken branch, to be enjoyed again and again!
Endearing and richly illustrated, this hands-on tale will delight and inspire makers of all ages.
