Description


Influential artist Carson Ellis makes her solo picture-book debut with a whimsical tribute to the many possibilities of home.

Home might be a house in the country, an apartment in the city, or even a shoe. Home may be on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the artist’s own studio. A meditation on the concept of home and a visual treat that invites many return visits, this loving look at the places where people live marks the picture-book debut of Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of the Wildwood series and artist for the indie band the Decemberists.

About the Author


Carson Ellis previously illustrated The Composer Is Dead by Lemony Snicket and Dillweed's Revenge by Florence Parry Heide. She also collaborated with her husband, Colin Meloy, on the best-selling Wildwood series. Carson Ellis lives with her family outside Portland, Oregon.

Praise For…


Arrestingly illustrated... Ellis, in her picture-book debut, draws with simplicity and precision, yet there are often so many fanciful details that second and third looks will come naturally. ... The whole effect makes the pictures seem like frameable art.
—Booklist (starred review)

It’s a work that confers classic gifts: time to look and time to wonder.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

[Ellis'] sly humor and irreverent spirit only endear her to kids and grown-ups alike.
—The New York Times

Ellis' compelling ink and gouache paintings, in a palette of blue-grays, sepia and brick red, depict scenes ranging from mythical, underwater Atlantis to a distant moonscape. ... Visually accomplished.
—Kirkus Reviews

A dreamy, painterly meditation on the diversity and range of dwellings around the world and across time and imagination. ... The text encourages the reader to participate (“But whose home is this? And what about this?”), and the cover illustration further extends the options of where we can live. All the choices are warmly inviting.
—The Horn Book

A simple yet deep look at homes... This is a great vocabulary builder as you talk about all the homes — what makes them the same and what makes them different.
—Chicago Tribune

A stunner.
—The Wall Street Journal

Enchanting and accessible, "Home" is an instant classic for the K-3 set and a thoughtful Northwest-grown gift.
—Seattle Times

In her beautiful and inviting solo debut, Home, Carson Ellis (Wildwood series artist) illustrates the many different kinds of homes that humans and animals—past, present and even fictional—might inhabit.
—Shelf Awareness

Skillfully rendered and artistically pleasing.
—School Library Journal

Charming.
—Apartment Therapy

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**
