A Place to Call Home by Alexis Deacon, illustrated by Viviane Schwarz

 

This is a funny and thoughtful picture book for older readers. A litter of rodents outgrow their burrow (possibly hamsters?) and venture across imaginary oceans and deserts on a quest to find a new home. An enjoyable adventure with lots to discuss about belonging, courage and being part of the wide world.
