‘The Gift’ is another of my stories written for and published by ‘the People’s Friend’. Editor Hilary had asked for more of my stories and this was her favourite. She always enjoyed stories about New Zealand wild life. She published it with a beautiful illustration of a Gum Emperor Moth.

James is sad. He misses his neighbour and good friend, Tom, Mr Laughton, but is now worried about Mrs Laughton, his friend Nonna. Her grief has frozen her into an icy state of silence. James knows that Tom would want him to help Nonna but will his idea work and release Noona from her misery?
