Sometimes you just want to be alone; alone with your ideas; alone with good experiences; alone among the huts you are building. But then someone comes along who wants to be with you. A friend who isn't necessarily a best friend; someone who takes away important bits of wood; who makes strange suggestions; who even uses the floor of the finest wooden hut as a toilet.
Prize-winning author and illustrator Anna Fiske brings a lot of humour to her description of what it is like to have somebody close by you when you really don't want to have anybody close by; when somebody just worms their way in. Secret huts is about me against you, about how difficult it is to set boundaries and how difficult it is to reject somebody, in this instance when you are building huts.
