A Small Collection of Happiness

Zana Fraillon, Stephen Michael King

An unforgettable story of young and old friendship, and the healing power of stories, from two masters of their craft, renowned Australian writer Zana Fraillon and illustrator Stephen Michael King.

Are you ready? Are you listening? Something is about to begin.

When Ada arrives on the day of the Great Summer Storm, it is like the wind had picked her up and blown her in – suitcase and all – and dumped her right at the front gates of number 9 Hawkhurst Lane.

Unfortunately, Ada is not the kind of neighbour Hettie was hoping for. Cranky, impatient, and a hater of cats, Ada has no intention of making friends.

But as the summer unfolds, Hettie and Ada discover they have more in common than they think. Could their unlikely friendship be the missing piece they never knew they needed?
