This is an intriguing and mesmerising picture book set in the Malaysian jungle.

Curious Kaya, who is seeking her ‘heart song’, journeys deep within the vibrant jungle, which is so beautifully portrayed in the illustrations using a dazzling palette of bright reds, oranges, purples and yellows set against the vegetatious backdrop of countless shades of green.

When Kaya finds a mysterious carousel, the captivating music it produces leads Kaya to discover her own heart song.

This is a truly unique picture book, grounded in the values of mindfulness, and one that will leave young readers wide-eyed with surprise and wonder.
