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.
Publication Date: 1991
A homeless boy who lives in an airport with his father, moving from terminal to terminal trying not to be noticed, is given hope when a trapped bird finally finds its freedom.
EVE BUNTING has written over two hundred books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere. She lives in Southern California.
