When things that a boy loves disappear from his life, he wonders whether they are gone forever. Will blossom and rain ever come back? Yes they will, but in their own time. This reasurring story moves from feelings of loss to a new confidence that comes with knowledge that these and more do, and will, return.

Pim and dog Tiddle went over a mountain, and found a rich market place. Pim asked a man, "Please may I eat one of those beautiful fruits?" "What will you give me in return for the fruit?" said the man. "I haven't got anything," said Pim. "There must be something that your people have that we don't," said a woman. Pim looked around. "I think we have more happiness than you have," said Pim. "Bring us some of that, then," said the man. But how can you bottle and transport happiness?
