The Journey Home
by Frann Preston-Gannon
Winner Sendak Fellowship
By the UK's first ever recipient of the Sendak Fellowship. A mournful looking polar bear looks out onto his seascape and wonders where all of his ice has gone. He decides to embark on an ice hunt, setting off in a tiny boat. En route, he picks up other animals whose natural habitats are under threat: a panda, an orang-utan and an elephant...until, finally, they land on an island inhabited by a Dodo. A wonderfully illustrated story about the destruction to our environment, forced migrations and hope for a much kinder future. 'A book to prick our collective conscience' (Eileen, Former Teacher, LL reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 29pp
