«A soul-warming treat.»

The Bookseller, The Bookseller

«A beautifully crafted, whimsical and self-indulgent exploration of the concept of home, bouncing back and forth between a romanticised observation of reality and luscious fantasy worlds.»

Simona Ciraolo, Inis Reading Guide 2015, Children's books Ireland

«What emerges is a playful and tender reminder that however different our walks of life — we are united by our deep desire for a place to call home.»

Maria Popover, Brainpickings

«The book is a love letter, in many ways, to architecture...»

Julie Danielson, Kirkus Reviews

«Visually accomplished»

Kirkus reviews

«Every page opening is a surprise and a delight, and even after many viewings, this panoply of dwelling places continues to enthrall and intrigue the viewer.»

Valerie Coughlan, Children's Books Ireland

«Ellis presents a dreamy, painterly meditation on the diversity and range of dwellings around the world and across time and imagination.»

Sarah Ellis, The Horn Book Magazine

«It’s a work that confers classic gifts: time to look and time to wonder.»

Publishers Weekly

«Her sly humor and irreverent spirit only endear her to kids and grown-ups alike.»

John Lithgow, New York Times Sunday Book Review

«[...] this is an imaginative celebration of the many possibilities of home. [...] This loving look at the places where people live brims with intriguing characters and is a visual treat that demands many a return visit.»

Surrey Advertiser, Junior News & Mail, Aldershot News and Mail

«It is a beautiful picture book showing us over twenty different homes [...] This book is a feast for the imagination and a wonderful way to introduce young children to the amazing variety of places that both humans and animals have called home.»
