Product Description

The only home Andrew and his dad have is the airport. "It's better than the streets," Dad says. "It's warm. It's safe. And the price is right." What Dad says is true. But still, Andrew hopes that one day life will be the way it used to be. Then he and his dad can have a place of their own again. This new picture book by Eve Bunting and Ronald Himler is written and illustrated with the same spare honesty that distinguished their earlier collaboration, The Wall. It takes a topical problem and transforms it into a work of art.
