Imagine a land where all the animals are free
Exciting, fast and funny, this lavish picture book adventure is developed out of an exceptional fusion of talents and will delight children of all ages.
Forced to leave his woodland home, destroyed by the expansion plans of the evil Gretsch, Wirral the squirrel vows to find the fabled land of Animalia, where all the animals are said to live in freedom and without fear.
Aided and abetted by Froggo the hot-air-ballooning frog, Wilhamina the plucky red squirrel, and Rasty the street-wise rodent, Wirral's personal quest turns into a full-blown plan to save enslaved animals everywhere. A plan which is fraught with danger.
