The Book

In this autumnal adventure, the girls journey deep into the forest to discover the power of trees and the importance of teamwork 

It's the start of a new year at school and Zia is hosting the next playdate for her friends, Katy and Cassie, just as the leaves are turning golden and conkers are forming on the horse chestnut tree in her garden. In the early autumn sunshine, the girls decide their next adventure is going to take them deep into an enchanted forest, where the biggest conker in the world is growing at the top of the tallest tree. Journeying deeper and deeper into the forest, however, the girls realise something isn't right. The forest is darkening and the trees around them are dying. Something powerful is robbing the forest of all its goodness. Can they figure out what before it's too late?
