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.

When a boy washes up on a desert island, he is sure he’s on his own in the world. But there’s someone else living there: Hom, a peace-loving creature who has lost his family, too.

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

"A beautiful story of a friendship that crosses language and prejudice" - The Bookseller

'…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
