Welcome by Barroux

The follow-up to Barroux's stunning and critically acclaimed Where's the Elephant? and Where's the Starfish? When Polar Bear and his friends are swept away from their icy home, they hope to find refuge in a new land. But when they are turned away from one new place after another, they start to doubt that they will ever find somewhere they will be made welcome. In this exceptional book, author-illustrator Barroux has crafted a powerful story with a twist ending about hugely important and current issues. A great opportunity for parents to discuss with children the plight of migrants and refugees, as well as global warming, in a gentle, open-ended way. With a reassuring twist, this exceptional and very current book should be read to young children everywhere. (Picture Books Blogger). Barroux tells his story with a light touch and a sprinkling of humour, which takes nothing away from the message. (The Bookbag).
