‘Home is a…’ Taking this statement, Carson Ellis in this debut picture book sets out to explore the concept of ‘home’, a place certainly but one that will be very different depending on who or what you are. So we do not find just the conventional house with four walls, a door, windows roof and chimney. Yes, that is there but we also find places, campervans, the home of a Norse god – even a shoe. Questions are asked, demanding a response from the young reader because this isn’t a story. This is a book to inspire discussion, to jog the imagination. This is especially true because here are no photographs. Instead we have the artist’s ideas. Using cool browns, greys, soft greens so that the drama of a splash of red really draws the eye, Ellis takes us round the world – or even out of it – following the bird of imagination from the front end paper to the end. Can you find it on every spread?
