One House for All
Inese Zandere and Juris Petraškevičs
A parcel from Book Island publishers is always exciting; their books exude quality and originality. It’s certainly so in this unusual take on the extended family.
Three good friends, Raven, Crayfish and Horse meet together and hold a discussion. Each wants to get married and have a family, but their friendship is so strong that a way must be found to preserve it. What can they do to remain close?
The friends decide to build a wonderful new home where they can live together; but a home that encompasses all their needs is no easy matter.
Three sketches are drawn up in turn with the three animals each clearly outlining his perfect family home.
It will come as no surprise when I say that the three homes are totally different.
Surely this isn’t to be the end of a beautiful friendship or a calling off of the marriages …
The power of the story lies in the simplicity of its telling: that, and the absolutely superb, vibrant illustrations make for a strikingly beautiful book.
Let difference, respect and friendship thrive, no matter how, no matter what.
Here’s a book that could help all three flourish.
