However, when Maya starts to build she just cant seem make it work, no matter how hard she tries. Maya has two choices- give up, or find someone who can help. Plucky Maya turns to her friends the animals, who provide the just-right help needed for each part of the project. Then a huge storm comes up, which chases her home and threatens to undo all their hard work! What will Maya find when she returns to her amazing tree fort? This book is a sweet fantasy about creating something of your own, asking for help and, of course, the magic of talking to animal friends! I loved the beautiful illustrations in this book as well.
