'i am the small green pea, you are the tender pod, hold me...' Glenda Millard's beautiful lullaby words sing over the stunning illustration as we watch a mother and baby, a boy and a dog run for their lives. A polar bear, too has come adrift. When will they find land? Who will welcome them in? In all the wide world we each need a safe place to call home.
Glenda Millard is the author of the Carnegie Medal-shortlisted 'The Stars at Oktober Bend', as well as 'A Small Free Kiss in the Dark', republished by Old Barn Books in 2017. Stephen Michael King has illustrated and designed many wonderful books for children and collaborated most recently with Glenda Millard on 'The Duck and the Darklings', which was selected by the International Youth Library as a White Raven title in 2015. They live close to each other in Victoria, Australia.
