'I was swept along by Asha's story from the first page.'SARAH DRIVER, author of The Huntress trilogy

Asha lives in the foothills of the Himalayas. Money is tight and she misses her papa who works in the city. When he suddenly stops sending his wages, a ruthless moneylender ransacks their home andher mother talks of leaving.

From her den in the mango tree, Asha makes a pact with her best friend, Jeevan, to find her father and make things right. But the journey is dangerous: they must cross the world's highest mountains and face hunger, tiredness - even snow leopards.

And yet, Asha has the unshakeable sense that the spirit bird of her grandmother - her nanijee - will be watching over her.

Review:

'An evocative debut novel ... satisfyingly classic in feel' (The Guardian)

'[A] warm, comforting story ... the final ending is as perfect as any fairy tale.' (Booktrust)

'The words do justice to the pictures. If one of the gifts of fiction is to proffer unfamiliar footwear in which to walk a while, Bilan's story is an eye-opening adventure, with one sandalled foot in atmospheric realism and a toe-hold in the mythical.' (The Observer)

'This story will transport you to snowy forests, mountain temples and bustling cities' (The Week Junior)

'... weaves themes of faith, friendship and greed into a vibrant adventure with a rich seam of magical realism.' (The Bookseller)

'Immerse yourself in a lush world of spirit birds, mango trees, snow leopards and majestic mountains in a sumptuous and sizzling debut novel ... guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of middle grade readers.' (Lancashire Evening Post)

'This is just a really, really gorgeous book filled with so much heart. I'm so happy I got the chance to read it.' (The Whispering of the Pages) ---
