by King, Stephen MichaelMillard, Glenda

We are all in this world together – I, you, we. A glorious, heartfelt picture book about being there for one another from award- winning creators Glenda Millard and Stephen Michael King.

I am the small green pea, you are the tender pod, hold me.

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.

Words sing over the pictures in this evocative story: a beautiful lullaby about what we can be for each other.

Glenda Millard is the author of many highly acclaimed novels and picture books. Most recently her young adult novel, The Stars at Oktober Bend, (Old Barn Books in the UK, Candlewick Press in North America), is (at time of writing) on the shortlist for the prestigious CILIP Carnegie Award, longlist for the 2017 UKLA Book Awards and listed as a 2017 CBCA Notable book (all Awards winners TBA).

Stephen Michael King has illustrated, written and designed many wonderful books for children. Their most recent picture book collaboration, The Duck and the Darklings, was the Winner of the 2016 WA Premier’s Book Awards in the Children’s Book Category; shortlisted for the 2015 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Awards, the 2015 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and the Wilderness Society’s Environmental Award for Children’s Literature; and was selected by the International Youth Library as a White Raven 2015 book.
