This is an inspiring and uplifting story about a little boy called REDCAP, who lives with his MOTHER in the enchanted WILDWOOD.

He is such a happy fellow and all the creatures in the forest love him. One day his mum becomes ill and he is determined to look after her and make her well.

Through this he discovers his infinite strength and self-confidence despite being a little boy. Luckily, Robby Robin, Sammy Squirrel, Softy Sheepdog and a woodsman called Mr Bobbins come to his rescue.
