A Place to Call Home

Written by Alexis Deacon

Illustrated by Viviane Schwarz

A Place to Call Home Synopsis

An endearing adventure story about finding a place to call home. This is the story of a band of seven furry brothers. They live in a nice, safe, warm home - a very small hole. Yet as they grow up they become too big for the tiny space and are forced out into the world. And so their adventure begins - a quest for a new place to call their own! This determined little unit tackle the elements: crossing the sea, climbing a mountain, trawling across the desert and surviving a labyrinth until, finally, they reach the edge of the world... What will they see here and will they ever find a place they can call home?

A Place to Call Home Press Reviews

This collaboration between two Bookseller favourites is a real treat. An epic adventure of seven furry brothers in search of a new home, with all the humour and innovation you would expect. * Bookseller * A great picture book ... is as rare as hens' teeth. So it is with great joy that I can add one more to the list... This is a wonderful book -- Amanda Craig * The Times * This endearing and engaging picture book about growing up is told with gentle humour and illustrated by Best New Illustrator Viviane Schwarz's blend of painting and photography. * Booktrust * (a) humorous mini-epic ... Schwarz uses a mixture of illustrations and photography to great effect and gives each creature a distinct persona. * The Herald * The adventure is splendid, the ending happy * Carousel *
