Animal homes of all kinds are introduced in the boldly coloured illustrations to this chunky board book. The little mouse lives in a hole, the fluffy bird lives in a nest in a tree. The snail carries its house around with it on its back so it has a home wherever it goes. Turning the wheel shows the snail at home at different times.
This is a turn-the-wheel concept book from the award-winning Petr Horacek. The surprise comes at the end, when the fun turn-the-wheel device reveals that Snail's home is on his back and he takes it with him everywhere.
It includes a turn-the-wheel element, designed to engage attention and improve co-ordination.
Petr Horacek has been shortlisted for the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal.
