Its a windy autumn day and the forest friends are out catching falling leaves for luck. Nim wants to break his all-time record of five lucky leaves before tea time. But the more leaves he catches the more accidents he seems to have catching them. And then Kay accidentally hurts Nim's feelings. Forget breaking records, will Nim survive until teatime?
This is a children's picture book: a fun story that also encourages compassion for others, enjoyment of nature and playing outside.
In addition to the story which is about catching falling leaves for luck, the book could be topped and tailed with simple drawings and identifying descriptions of half a dozen common leaves. A light hearted style. EG: "Holly leaves: Very prickly, they can fall at any time of year and lie in heaps under holly trees. Avoid sitting on them."
Character biographies with images. And hints of future stories.
