Candlewick Press A Place to Call Home

Seven little junkyard critters venture out of their small, dark hole on a charmingly madcap quest for a new home, with laugh-out-loud results. When a band of brothers outgrows the dim confines of their birthplace, there is no other choice b...ut to set out into the world on a grand adventure. Timid and terrified at first, they soon find ingenious ways to simulate the safety of their familiar hole. They bravely cross a muddy sea, climb a discarded mountain, survive an appliance-like labyrinth, and finally reach the edge of the world. What will they see there, and will they ever find a place they can call their own? Loaded with visual humor and breathless commentary by the intrepid crew, this comic book-style tale of solidarity and daring will have readers giggling, cheering, and ready to see the world in a new way.

In this stunning volume, the incomparable team of Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda take us to Ra-Atum?s land in Ancient Egypt; above the Grecian clouds to Zeus?s Mount Olympus; up to Norse god Odin?s frozen north; to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor sits in the heavens; into the wilds of Oceania, where Pele?s volcanic rage simmers below the earth; and to many more lands and times, all rich with sacred myths and legends.

From Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Ted Kooser and rising talent Jon Klassen comes a poignant tale of loss, change, and natures quiet... triumph. When the house was new, not a single tree remained on its perfect lawn to give shade from the sun. The children in the house trailed the scent of wild trees to neighboring lots, where thick bushes offered up secret places to play. When the children grew up and moved away, their father, alone in the house, continued his battle against blowing seeds, plucking out sprouting trees. Until one day the father, too, moved away, and as the empty house began its decline, the trees began their approach. At once wistful and exhilarating, this lovely, lyrical story evokes the inexorable passage of time ? and the awe-inspiring power of nature to lift us up.
