A classic story of friendship across continents.
Inuit girl Immi finds a wooden bird at the end of her fishing line, and every day after that she discovers something new, until her igloo is the brightest thing in the land. But where are these mysterious gifts coming from, and who is sending them? Hope and friendship echo across continents in this beautiful, timeless tale.

“One of the most beautiful picture books of the year.”
"A truly magical tale that brought a tear to my eye; how much a small kindness means and how little we know about the way a small gesture can bring happiness to one we have never met. Delicate illustrations accompany the story to perfection."
