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. But Lulu is worried that she's too small, but Mrs. Badger assures her that she was younger when she made the climb for the first time, and Lulu decides to follow.
On the way, Lulu learns to take care of the natural world, help those in need, and listen to her intuition. And over time. it's Lulu who's offering a steadying hand to Mrs. Badger. 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.
"Lulu joins Mrs. Badger on her Sunday walks, learning about wild plants and making friends. And when Mrs. Badger is too frail to make the trips anymore, Lulu takes over, performing the same kinds of small favors that Mrs. Badger did before her, and inviting a new young friend to trek alongside. Lulu’s faithfulness and loving-kindness implicitly honors Mrs. Badger’s memory." — Publishers Weekly
