WINNER OF THE COSTA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD 2019Asha lives in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Money is tight and she misses her papa who works in the city.

When he suddenly stops sending his wages, a ruthless moneylender ransacks their home and her mother talks of leaving. From her den in the mango tree, Asha makes a pact with her best friend, Jeevan, to find her father and make things right.

But the journey is dangerous: they must cross the world's highest mountains and face hunger, tiredness - even snow leopards. And yet, Asha has the unshakeable sense that the spirit bird of her grandmother - her nanijee - will be watching over her.
