"I love to give this book as a gift. It features simple text and gorgeous illustrations. Each page is an example of home that someone or something lives in. From old shoes to hillside cottages, this covers them all. Readers may recognize Carson Ellis as the illustrator in residence for the band, The Decemberists."--Reviewed by Emily Ages 2+— From Emily Recommends
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.
