A heartwarming picture book from award-winning author-illustrator Caroline Magerl about two unlikely loners who forge a forever friendship.

Nop is a scruffy kind of bear. He sits on a dusty armchair in Oddmint's Dumporeum surrounded by the beaders, knitters, patchers and stitchers who are much too busy to talk to him. So he watches the litter tumble until, armed with a new bow tie, he has an idea that will change his life forever.

This story began with a memory of Caroline's school holidays in Sydney. Her father was welding a steel yacht in a boat yard and she wandered off . . . only to discover the local dump, a home for the things people throw out! Many years later, her daughter Jen made a teddy bear out of scraps for her father. It's a very sorry-looking, but endearing creature. Named Roadkill, ten years later it still sits on top of his desk.

  • Caroline's work is a perfect blend of a poetic text and the poetry of stunning watercolour artwork. 
  • Caroline's first book for Walker Books, Maya and Cat, has been embraced around the world and has been sold to the UK and the US. 
  • The driver for this story is the importance of deciding value for yourself and not letting the opinions of others determine how you see yourself or influence how you act. (Nop looking inward). Equally important, is how differently people value things in relation to their context. Nop was an unwanted and tatty thing until he became the beloved bear of an orangutan. (Nop looking outward)
