The Guardian: Best Children's and YA Book of the Year
 
An environmental fairytale that speaks eloquently to the most pressing issues of our times, from the Booker Prize–winning author of The Famished Road.

Mangoshi lives with her mom and dad in a village near the forest. When her mom becomes ill, Mangoshi knows only one thing can help her—a special flower that grows deep in the forest.
 
The little girl needs all her courage when she sets out alone to find and bring back the flower, and all her kindness to overpower the dangers she encounters on the quest.
 
Ben Okri brings the power of his mystic vision to a timely story that weaves together wonder, adventure, and environmentalism.
