This is the story of a band of seven furry brothers. They live in a nice, safe, warm home – a very small hole. Yet as they grow up they become too big for the tiny space and are forced out into the world. And so their adventure begins – a quest for a new place to call their own! This determined little unit tackle the elements: crossing the sea, climbing a mountain, trawling across the desert and surviving a labyrinth until, finally, they reach the edge of the world... What will they see here and will they ever find a place they can call home?


This collaboration between two Bookseller favourites is a real treat. An epic adventure of seven furry brothers in search of a new home, with all the humour and innovation you would expect.
