Synopsis

On the Way Home by Jill Murphy

Well, said Claire, there was a very big, bad wolf . . . Claire has hurt her knee so she sets off home to tell her mum all about it. On the way she meets her friends and tells them how the fall happened. But just how did it happen . . .? Was she dropped by a wolf, a slithering snake, an enormous dragon or a hairy gorilla?! By Jill Murphy, the author and illustrator of the bestselling Peace at Last and Whatever Next!, On the Way Home is a fantastic journey of the imagination that every child can relate to.
