About The Book

Mia and Ben are the very best of friends. They live side by side at the edge of a great, wide lake and together they sail, and swing, and sing. But the thing they love the most is making paper planes. They dream of one day being able to make a plane that will fly all the way across the lake, and their planes become more and more intricate... 

But one day: terrible news. Ben's family are moving far, far away. How can Mia and Ben stay best friends if they are so far apart? And how will they ever realise their dream of making a plane that can fly across their lake?

Find out in this moving, lyrical story of friendship and flight.

About The Author

Born in the west country, Jim now lives in London and works in the licensing industry. He has written several picture books, including the award winning Letterbox Lil and Stripy Horse series. In his spare time Jim loves to grow vegetables and this gave him the idea for a seriously splatty story: Oh No, Monster Tomato!

About The Illustrator

RJ grew up in Leamington Spa before moving down to Devon to study illustration at the University of Plymouth in Exeter and never went home again! After finishing his degree he stayed on to complete a P.hD. While working on his thesis he got a 'temporary job' in Exeter's Central Library and somehow found himself working there for more than ten years. When not at his desk he enjoys bobbing about in the sea, swimming in rivers, walking in woods, listening to audiobooks on the bus and stroking the cat. He now works full time as an author and illustrator.
