Illustrated by Carson Ellis

Influential artist Carson Ellis makes her solo picture-book debut with a beautifully imaginative tribute to the many possibilities of home.

The picture book debut of Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of the Wildwood series and Lemony Snicket's The Composer is Dead, this is a gorgeous, imaginative celebration of the many possibilities of home. Home might be a house in the country, a flat in the city, or even a shoe. There are clean homes, messy homes, sea homes and bee homes. Home resides on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the artist's own studio. This loving look at the places where people live brims with intriguing characters and is a visual treat that demands many a return visit.

  • An imaginative, stunningly illustrated idea of what a home can be, full of intriguing characters and locales both familiar and exotic.
  • The first picture book both written and illustrated by Carson Ellis.
  • Carson Ellis is well-known as the illustrator for the albums of her husband's indie band, The Decemberists.
