Ellie loves sleepovers with Aunt Miranda, who is the best cook in the world! They love to feed the cute birds and the fluffy ducklings, but other less appealing creatures keep appearing because they're hungry too! Gradually Ellie learns to look out for the creatures who are usually ignored but are just as needy and worthy of care. A lovely book for adults and children to read together and to help children think about caring for creation and those less fortunate than themselves.
