Honor Book: CBCA 2020 Awards, Book of the Year, Early Childhood

This is the last time I'll fish in this river ...
This is the last time I'll run through these trees ...
This is the last time I'll dream by this fire …
Goodbye, old house. Goodbye.

A heartwarming story of letting go and starting anew, of moving from the country to the city, with a unique illustration style that allows room and space for the reader's imagination.

“Ann James’ painted illustration gives warmth and neutrality to the places, meaning that readers can impose their own familiar ideas about home onto them . . . Simple and effective.” —Book Trust

“Margaret Wild's minimal text combined with Ann James' muted story-telling illustrations leave plenty of room for the reader's imaginations. This heart-warming book offers a great starting point for opening up discussion about change . . .” —Red Reading Hub
