Birt and Etho are best friends.  They spend hours playing on Sudden Hill.  But then a new boy arrives and wants to join them.  Can the twosome become a threesome?


Benji Davies’s amazing illustrations and Linda Sarah’s poetic language, translated by Antonis Papatheodoulou, convey the essential message that true friendship is incompatible with possessive behaviors and that friendship can change us, making our lives more beautiful.


The compelling tale of “Sudden Hill” will give parents and educators occasion to talk to children about the value of unconditional, unselfish and bountiful friendship.
