About the book

An inspiring story about a Romani Traveller family, ideal for children practising reading at home or in school.

Halle and her family are Romani Travellers. They move around and they're very good at fixing and making things. Halle's family visit a village that had lots of problems at their annual running race last year. Can Halle's family, with their truck of tools and wood, help the community avert another disaster? This story from children's authors Richard O'Neill and Michelle Russell is perfect for Key Stage 1 (KS1) children who are learning to read by themselves. It features colour illustrations by Elijah Vardo and provides awareness, understanding and celebration of a Travelling community.
