Cannily, Cannily

By Simon French

They were on the move again, but nowhere ever felt like home.

“Home, he thought grimly. Funny sort of home, a caravan and a kombi with a tent annexe to connect the two.” Trevor is canny. Knowing. Thrifty. Cautious. But he also wants to belong. A brilliant novel from the multi-award-winning author Simon French.

  • Short-listed, UK Guardian Fiction Prize, 1982
  • Commended Book, Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards, 1982
  • “Breathtakingly alive.” Reading Time magazine
