Waterstones Says

With warm, beautifully composed illustrations from Asa Gilland, Clare Helen Welsh’s sensitively handled picture book deals with the complicated emotions that surrounded a loved one’s diagnosis of cancer. A hugely valuable tool to help children understand serious illness and the ways it affects people, The Perfect Shelter tells a deeply affecting story with compassion and heart.    

A powerfully told story from Clare Helen Welsh and Asa Gilland that explores the emotions we feel when someone we love is battling a serious illness.

At first, nobody knew. It seemed as if today would be like yesterday forever, the perfect day to build a shelter in the woods. Then, my sister changed - she was more tired than before. More quiet. When we learn that she is sick, really sick, it feels as though a storm has engulfed our whole family. But, we will ride out this storm. And though today may be different from yesterday, today is the perfect day to build a shelter, together.

A heartwarming book that sensitively tackles the tough subject of illness with authentic and empathetic tenderness. Much like Michael Rosen's Sad Book, A Shelter for Sadness or The Building Boy, The Perfect Shelter offers children a way to understand and articulate complex, often overwhelming, emotions.
