Nowhere to Call Home
By (author) Kate Milner; Illustrated by Kate Milner
A gentle but important exploration of the growing problem of homelessness from the critically acclaimed and award-winning creator of My Name is Not Refugee and It’s a No-Money Day.Mum can’t afford the rent any more, so she and her two young children have to move into a hostel while they wait their turn to get to the top of the housing list. Their new home throws up lots of challenges – they have to share a bathroom and the kitchen, and there is lots of noise at night. With no space to play or peace to do homework, tempers can fray, but as long as they have each other, they’ll find a way through.
