“The first children’s book from bestselling author and poet, Lemn Sissay, this is a lovely celebration of curiosity and belonging. With an overall message of home being inside you, the story is perfectly matched by wonderful vibrant illustrations.” BookTrust
“A lovely book, simple and yet profound. There should be a copy in every nursery”
“A stunning new rhyming folk tale for our time, about someone who wonders where is home. The answer is surprising but it tells us all, from the youngest reader to the oldest that you can find home so long as you’ve got friends. It’s moving, loveable and philosophical, in other words, great mind-soup!”
“The story is perfectly matched by the wonderful illustrations and I love the message of home being inside you”
This is the story of a little boy called Alem who goes on an adventure.
It’s his birthday, but who knows where he can go to celebrate it? Maybe the bear, the fox, the treefrog or the bulldog know?
But don’t ask the dragon . . . or he will EAT you!
