At variants with its title, this is a subtle story of a lonely child searching for a place in the world, somewhere it is possible to belong... The reader accompanies the child on a journey through different habitats, meeting different groups of animals. A measured change from past to present tense and from loneliness to togetherness signal a change.





 

There is a shelf of books by renowned artist and author Lane Smith, including the New York Times bestselling It's a Book and its companion, It's a Little Book. The beautiful Caldecott Honor-winning Grandpa Green can also be found there alongside his brilliantly quirky collaborations with John Scieszka including The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Stinky Cheeseman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. In 2012, the Eric Carle Museum named him a Carle Artist for "lifelong innovation in the field of children's picture books," and in 2014 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Illustrators. Lane Smith lives in a small town in rural Connecticut, USA with his wife, the designer Molly Leach, and a scurry of flying squirrels.
