written & Produced by

Helen Hooper

Author, storyteller, editor
Helen wrote the first draft of this story over ten years ago. It has never been aired in any form until now. It's been sitting on an old hard drive waiting for the right time to bring it to life. And brought to life it certainly has been - in so many ways by the most amazing team! This one has been an enormous project and a huge effort. And we're absolutely delighted with the outcome.

Christine's illustrations are exquisite - and she has produced so many of them for this one, we've been able to animate the entire story! It's truly gorgeous.
