“Home might be a house in the country. Or an apartment in the city. Or even a shoe,” writes Carson Ellis in her beautifully illustrated solo debut, Home. There are clean homes, messy homes, wigwams, palaces, boats and lairs.  When I ask the children which home in the book they would most like to live in, Antimo predictably leafs his way to the pirate ship. Iole points to an exotic palace, in Jordan, perhaps. Jason chooses a tiny stone hut perched on a cliff high above the mountains in a place that looks like Burma. Me, I chose the home of a Norse god –– a palace complete with quirky turrets, a giant poppy, Ash trees and a wild  goat (that stands on a turret).
