The Ones Who Walk Above is a highly acclaimed new thought-provoking book for our time.
Raised on fireside tales of “The Ones Who Walk Above”, a young badger called Kit leaves his loving home on a quest to find the truth behind the legends.
Many adventures lie ahead as he searches for the mythical “Promised Land”, but will his curiosity end in sorrow, or ultimately lead to salvation for the beleaguered creatures that call the countryside their home?
