In the beautiful French countryside, among fields of lavender and stone farmhouses, a little girl named Melanie shares her joyful life with a variety of animal friends. She opens her heart and home to them all, providing a message of kindness for young readers. Melanie’s open-door policy for animals is stretched to the limit when one particular furry critter arrives. Can you guess what it is? Inspired by her love of nature and animals, author Karen J. Roberts brings unforgettable lessons of compassion, empathy and friendship to this engaging tale. She reminds us that our choices matter, and each day we have a chance to make a positive impact on the world around us. The adorable, googly-eyed illustrations artfully created by Jeanne du Plessis provide a whimsical and charming addition to the story. This is Karen and Jeanne’s third collaboration with more to come!
