Unlike all Ifts, Snutt was a dreamer...
and for this reason Snutt travelled further,
and more hopefully, than any other Ift."

A simple story, beautifully told and illustrated by Helen Ward. This is a universal tale of adventure and friendship based on another world, but echoed clearly in our own. My children love to look at the pictures, so it takes twice as long to read this book as any other. Every time they look at it they find something new to wonder at and talk about. I appreciate how gently Ward unveils the message of the importance and magic of friendship.
I loved it. It's cute, short, sweet and conveys a wonderul message. And the illustrations are absolutely fantastic, definitely loved this book.
