Where's Home, Daddy Bear?

By Nicola O'Byrne
Illustrated by Nicola O'Byrne

Everything is about to change ... Evie Bear is moving home.

From the bestselling creator of the Waterstones Book Prize winner Open Very Carefully, Nicola O’Byrne, comes a tender story about dealing with change. Evie Bear and Dad are moving. But as they leave their old home behind and set off on their long drive towards the new, Evie is full of questions… “What if I don’t like it there?” she worries, “How will I make new friends?” But Evie's dad reassures her with wise and comforting words and, by the end of their journey from the city to the country, Evie comes to realize: just as long as she is with her dad, she will always be at home.
