The animals of Farthing Wood have lost their home. Developers have paved over their woods and now the creatures are on a journey to a nearby nature reserve that promises safety. But the journey ahead is perilous, and the animals must band together in order to reach their destination. The series was first published in 1979 but its timeless themes will still entertain independent readers aged nine through twelve.
