Synopsis

My New Home by Marta Altes

Moving to a new home can sometimes feel scary and a little bit lonely, but this little racoon soon discovers that wherever you go adventures soon follow. My New Home by author/illustrator Marta Altes is a beautiful and uplifting story about moving house, making friends and finding a new home. This warm, thoughtful and reassuring story is written from the perspective of a young child. It's perfect for children about to move house or start new school, but has a universal message for any child about the importance of kindness and acceptance when meeting someone new.

About the Author

Marta Altes

Marta Altés loves to tell stories and her love of illustration saw her study for a degree in Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made!) and graduated in 2011. Her debut book for Macmillan, My Grandpa, was published in July 2012 and the author was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s 2012 Children’s Book Prize.

Marta lives in London.
