Our Tower

Our Tower

Author: Joseph Coelho Illustrator: Richard Johnson Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/08/2022

This magical story follows three children living in a tower block, as they embark on a fantastical adventure which helps them see their home in a new light. A deeply personal story written by the award winning poet Joseph Coelho, drawn from his own experience growing up in a tower block and looking for adventure. This story is a celebration of, and a reclaiming of tower blocks as a place where magic and adventure can happen. It's a modern-day fable that shows the children of a tower block travelling to a strange, magical world inside a tree and meeting an old man with supernatural powers, only to realise that the magic they'd been looking for had been in their tower all along. Beautiful illustrations complement the poetic narrative, creating an enchanting story which children and adults alike will fall in love with. This powerful story is about how society separates 'urban' spaces from the countryside, but the reality is that nature is everywhere, and everyone should have access to it.
