Perfectly round, impossibly green, and irresistibly soft and fluffy, the bimbles live a quiet, nervous existence in their hidden Fiordland valley.
Nervous … except for one. Bo Bimble is different. She’s full of questions, and when she learns from the kea about a predator fence that will cut them off from the land beyond, she sets off to visit before it’s too late.
Touring Fiordland with his parents in a campervan, bird-nerd Bernie is startled to find a kakapo-like creature hiding in his bedside cupboard.
And so begins a touching tale of friendship and adventure, between a misfit boy and a curious bimble.
Can Bernie help Bo find the answers to her questions while keeping her existence a secret? Because if people find out about the bimbles, Bo might never make it home to Bimble Sound.
