Meet Jim Hickory, he ain’t no hipster and make no mistake! Jim is a big, burly lumberjack, but one with a conscience and a big heart.
Where will the animals live if he cuts down all of the trees? And more to the point, what’s he going to do about it?!
How on earth will he be able to put this right?
Duncan Beedie‘s warm, earthy palette and intermittent panelled spreads make for a truly engaging read. His immense and utterly breathtaking landscapes, the flawless characterisation of Jim, his wood cabin and the surrounding valley, together with the over-arching message, culminate in a most powerful and salient story.
