A Times Children's Book of the Week
One of The Guardian's Best Children's Books of the Year

Mink doesn't believe in rules. She loves running wild and free. So, when a zebra appears in the square where she lives and she finds out that his parents have been captured by the evil Mr Spit, she knows that it's up to her to help.

So begins a grand adventure to rescue a whole menagerie of animals—an adventure that will take all of Mink's courage and determination. Written with generous helpings of warmth and humour, this is a timeless picture book about bravery, friendship and the importance of taking action.

With stunning illustrations by award-winning illustrator Sara Ogilvie, illustrator of The Detective Dog, this modern classic from bestselling children's author Katherine Rundell is an unmissable treat.

"A writer with an utterly distinctive voice and wild imagination" —Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials trilogy

"Rundell's playful style is paired with the bright, bustling drawings of Ogilvie to tell an intoxicating adventure." —The Guardian

"A delightful modern-day classic with a strong-willed and determined young girl whose passion for fighting for what is right is something all readers can aspire to" —Books for Keeps

"Rundell has identified a need in the children's books market: longer, wordier picture books for five to seven-year-olds that have the large pages and beautiful pictures of titles for younger children but with more challenging language, a meatier story and some very fruity baddies" —The Times
