Winner of 2017 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.

Did you ever want to waddle with a colony of penguins? Wriggle with an army of caterpillars? Or march with a troop of monkeys?

Legendary illustrator Lane Smith takes us on a colourful adventure through the natural world, following a child as he weaves through the jungle, dives under the ocean and soars into the sky.

Along the way he makes friends and causes mischief with a dazzling array of creatures both large and small - but can he find his own kind?

Full of warmth and humour, There Is a Tribe of Kids is a sumptuously detailed portrayal of wild childhood to be pored over for hours on end.

A witty and playful exploration of curiosity, discovery and what it means to belong, ideal for sharing with children of all ages. Sprinkled with beautiful gold flecks and specially designed peek-through flaps at the front and back.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Witty and humorous, never irreverent, this is a celebration of sharing and belonging, as a multiracial family hugs their adventurer on the closing page . . . Absolutely radiant. * Kirkus *
A wonderfully clever exploration of the rich variety of nature and a sensitive message about the importance of belonging * Daily Mail *
One of the book's delights is its shifting moods and colors, which feel like the movements of an orchestral work. The textures . . . seem organically formed, as if waves and time had worn them down, yet the spreads are vivid and clean. * Publishers Weekly *
Exudes a Chaplinesque charm, skillfully blending slapstick and melancholy * The New York Times *
This is a profoundly welcoming book - fresh and full of adventure and sweetness - about how each of us has a story of our own to tell. * The Washington Post *
A beautifully illustrated and poetic journey through the natural world, to discover groups of animals in oceans, rain forests and jungles. Mesmeric. * Huffington Post *
dazzling * New Statesman *
Loneliness, longing and quirky collective nouns combine to endearing effect * Wall Street Journal *
A gloriously imaginative, beautiful book * Angels & Urchins *
A beautiful book * Irish Independent *

This engaging and attractive exploration of collective nouns weaves a lovely story about a boy who
wants to belong. It follows his journey through a truly beautiful series of illustrations, reminiscent of
Where the Wild Things Are.

* BookTrust *
A visual treat exploring the curiosity and imagination of children * The Bookseller *
A wonderfully clever exploration of the rich variety of nature and a sensitive message about the importance of belonging, this deserves a place on every bookshelf. * The Daily Mail *
