Synopsis

Home Tweet Home by Courtney Dicmas

Pippi and Burt are tired of sharing their crowded nest with eight noisy little siblings, so off they fly to see the big, wide world and find a new home. But when they encounter all sorts of big, scary, hungry creatures, Pippi and Burt realize their crowded old nest is the best home of all. Here is an ideal story for anyone who appreciates the riotous joys (and challenges) of a large, rowdy family. It's a funny and warm tribute to both the thrill of adventure and the love of home. A gorgeously illustrated, colourful tale from the author of Lemur Dreamer.

Reviews

Courtney Dicmas

...Eventually the two together come to a realisation that it's a case of 'east, west home's best

; those birds are adorable, every one of them. And the other animals are equally winningly portrayed in Courtney Dicmas

.Her best book so far in my opinion. -- Jill Bennett * Red Reading Hub * There is so much to enjoy about Courtney Dicmas's tale of how it feels to take those precious first steps beyond our familiar comfort zone; not least the hilarious range of expressions she is able to give her little birds as they test out a succession of deeply unsuitable living rooms. Little ones will love trying to guess what creature the wanderers have landed on each time they put their feet down; and although the story ends with them happily tucked up where they started, there's an extra illustration by way of an epilogue, showing our hero and heroine wearing hard hats and drawing up architectural plans - clearly, further adventures are in store! * Teach Early Years Magazine *
