A Place Called Home

Walker Books will publish A Place Called Home in May 2011.

Written by Alexis Deacon ( Beegu, Slow Loris, While You Were Sleeping) and illustrated by Vivian Schwarz (There Are Cats in This Book, There Are No Cats in This Book) this is the very funny 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?
