Staff Reviews

Join wise Mrs. Badger & curious little Lulu on a journey of discovery as they climb the mountain path to the top of the world. Along the way, Lulu learns about the beauty of nature, the joy of friendship, and the rewards of spreading kindness and respect. A beautiful book!

— Linda Then


Mrs. Badger, an avid collector and naturalist, takes a weekly journey up to Sugarloaf Peak, greeting her friends on the way and sharing her discoveries with them. One day she meets Lulu, a very small cat, who wants to go with her to the top of the mountain. On the way, Lulu learns to take care of the natural world, help those in need, and listen to her intuition. Rich in wisdom and beautifully illustrated, Up the Mountain Path offers a profound story full of lessons about love, generosity, and following one's heart.
