Children's - Grade 1-2, Age 6-7
1 volume (unpaged)
Make Way For BooksExpect the unexpected! Houses, apartments, underground lairs, giant shoes and hollow trees capture the imaginations of young readers dreaming of home. Ellis encourages children to ask and answer questions (‘Whose home is this?’ ‘Why would someone live here?’) in a way that evokes wonder and inspires creativity. Kids will be redecorating their rooms and building forts after a little time in these pages. Even though the text is simple, the imaginative illustrations make it interesting for a wide span of ages, Toddler to Grade 2.
Publisher SummaryA whimsical tribute to the myriad possibilities of home depicts homes in different real-world environments as well as fantastical settings.
Influential artist Carson Ellis makes her solo picture-book debut with a whimsical tribute to the many possibilities of home.
Home might be a house in the country, an apartment in the city, or even a shoe. Home may be on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the artist's own studio. A meditation on the concept of home and a visual treat that invites many return visits, this loving look at the places where people live marks the picture-book debut of Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of the Wildwood series and artist for the indie band the Decemberists.
