Hom is the last of his kind. I don't know what kind of creature he is, and nobody knows he exists... apart from me.

But he soon discovers there's someone else living there: Hom, a peace-loving creature who has lost his family, too. Alone on the island together, they learn from each other and become the best of friends. So when a rescue ship appears on the horizon, the boy has a big decision to make...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jeanne Willis is one of our funniest writers for children, but she can do poignancy and tenderness with equal skill... Illustrator Paddy Donnelly creates a wonderfully lush and vibrant desert island, and his characters are equally warm and alive" -- Andrea Reece * Lovereading *
"Jeanne Willis is a writer who can assume different voices like wearing different hats... The theme of how society treats outsiders that loom different and come from different places will resonate... A lovely story for reading with children from 3 upwards. There is plenty of scope for book-based projects in infant classes and potentially the themes can be explored with children in the lower junior classes too" -- Nikki Gamble * Just Imagine *
"Hom will stay with you long after reading his wonderful story... This book has children hooked but is also a very deep book with lots of extremely important messages about the way society treats outsiders" * Nourished by Books *
"A gorgeously thoughtful tale of high adventure that will find a place in many hearts, HOM creates a whole new world of fun and reflection" * Books for Keeps *

'…he was peace loving happy and free.'

I am a bit of a fan of Jeanne Willis’ work. It started years ago, with Tadpole’s Promise. Years later and I still enjoy her books.

This one is rather special. Our... More
