Plucked from his home in the open air and plunged into darkness with hundreds of strangers… Will Wheatear ever see the light again?
As a bead on a necklace, Wheatear feels proud and valued — but then he's cast into the Box, where only the thinnest sliver of daylight can enter. Upset and confused, Wheatear must quickly learn which beads can be trusted — and which would like to see him crushed…
It isn't long before Wheatear faces the toughest choice of his life:
Work his way up and escape the Box, or sink even lower to save his new friends…?
This charming chapter book is sure to delight all readers aged 7+ with its tale of making new friends and surviving in unfamiliar places.
