This book introduces children to ten amazing and unusual types of home. They can experience life high up in a tree house or cuddled up cosy in an igloo; find out what it’s like to live underground or in a noisy, working windmill. Two spectacular double gatefolds allow them to see whether having hundreds of rooms in a castle is as exciting as it sounds, or whether floating about on a canal is more their style.

Signe Torp’s engagingly detailed paintings incorporate paper ephemera, including maps and musical scores as collage. Bringing different types of houses to life for young children in a delightful celebration of cultural diversity, this is the perfect book for anyone looking for a creative way of exploring how other people live.
