One morning it appeared, out of nowhere, sitting right outside Stella's house - a broken, old bus. On the front of it, held up with packing tape, is a hand-painted sign that says, Heaven . How did it get there? Everyone wonders... but no one knows. Then, out from the shadows step...s Stella, normally so shy. She climbs onto the bus and, in a moment, sees everything that it could become: This bus could be ours , she says. And so, the lonely old bus - with the help of some colourful graffiti - becomes a hub of activity. People come together to hold meetings, play games and share stories; sparrows nest where the engine used to be and snails make their little homes under the tyres. But one day a tow truck arrives and threatens to take away not just the bus, but everything that everyone has worked so hard to create. Can Stella save the day? This is a beautiful story about friendship, the strength of community and a little girl who finally comes into her own. Bob Graham's books have sold over two million copies worldwide! Heaven is endorsed by Amnesty International UK.
