The second children's book from the wonderful illustrator John Broadley, working with Booker-shortlisted novelist Mick Jackson, following their glorious debut picture book While You're Sleeping .

Mick Jackson's poetic prose and John Broadley's detailed and unique illustrations make this a special book to read again and again, and treasure for years to come. Beautifully illustrated in a limited colour palette, the winding, lyrical text follows a child's growth through travel - from crawling to walking, skating to biking and then on to trains, boats and planes. It also looks at the 'journey of life', how children grow and develop, how they choose their own routes through life, and make lasting memories as they go. Starting with the first time a baby comes home with its parents and ending with a grandparent reflecting on their life, it's a beautiful evocation of the journeys we all take through our lives.
