A House That Once Was [9781509880669]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Illustrated by the winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2017, Lane Smith, and chosen as one the New York Times Best Illustrated Books 2018.

Two children come across an abandoned house deep in the woods and imagine who could have lived there.

Deep in the woods
is a house
just a house
that once was
but now isn't
a home.

A House That Once Was is a beautifully illustrated exploration of time, imagination and the nature of home that is sure to provoke discussion. Lane's artwork is a riot of colour and rich texture that perfectly matches the poetic text written by the New York Times-bestselling author, Julie Fogliano.

This evocative, rhyming story is perfect for reading out loud.
