As we return to the forest to meet the popular characters from the story Taclus/Tidy, the magpies take centre stage this time. The story shows us how easy it is to be charmed by possessions, how few things we really need and how to recycle the things we can live without. A Welsh translation of a timely tale with lavish illustrations by a twice winner of the Kate Greenawy CILIP Medal.

Table of Contents:
Back in the same forest as Gravett’s award-winning Tidy/Taclus, it features a host of gorgeous woodland animals, including Pete the badger. Meg and Ash are a pair of magpies who are building a nest for their perfect eggs. Although they begin their nest construction using the usual mud, sticks and grass, Meg and Ash are soon convinced that their nest doesn’t have enough stuff and begin to collect more things to add to an ever-growing pile. From cuckoo clocks to mops and socks, a pram and even a car – their need for stuff seems endless. Until - crash! - the inevitable happens.
