A breathtaking and moving picture book about a brave quest in the big city.

I know what it's like to be small in the city.
No one sees you and maybe loud noises scare you,
and sometimes you don't know what to do.

But I know you.
You'll be fine.

In the first picture book that acclaimed illustrator Sydney Smith both drew and wrote, a child wanders determinedly through a big city all alone. The other people don't notice him, it's very busy and cars are honking and loud noises are heard everywhere. Will he find who he is looking for?

This picture book was awarded many prestigious prizes, including the British Kate Greenaway Medal and the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis. The text was translated by Edward van de Vendel.

"Brilliant and enchanting - one of the best children's books of the year and one of the most moving I know." The New York Times

"This heartfelt ode to the resilience of small creatures in a big, noisy world is tender and timeless - and a masterful fusion of text and image." The Horn Book
