Welcome to Ink House, a mysterious mansion, built on a reservoir of ink, that was abandoned when computers took over from writing by hand, and emails replaced letters. One day Freddie Foxglove, an enterprising fox, discovers the dilapidated house and decides it’s the perfect place to spend winter hibernation. Animals arrive from the forest, then further afield, from Prunella Shears, the gardening bee to Geraldine the Giraffe. As the house exerts its magical influence, the animals begin to embrace creative pursuits, writing, reading and studying the stars. They enjoy a magical winter, with daily tea parties and music recitals, until spring arrives and a strange sight appears on the horizon…

With discoveries on every page, this exquisitely inked picture book will surprise and delight readers of all ages.
