Shortlisted for the Yoto Kate Greenaway Medal 2022.

From the creator of modern classic Meerkat Mail, this warm, funny story about the dangers of having too much stuff, features a host of gorgeous animal characters including Pete the badger, star of Emily Gravett's award-winning book Tidy, which is set in the same forest.

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.

Emily Gravett's engaging, exquisitely illustrated story will appeal to fans of Tidy and of such classics as The Animals of Farthing Wood.
