Somewhere Else

A Picture Book

Roaring Brook Press


George has absolutely no interest in exploring the world. None at all.

He's far too busy enjoying his home life and baking delicious pastries. Or so he tells all his friends when they invite him along on their wonderful adventures.

But when George's friend Pascal digs a little deeper, the real reason George refuses to travel away from home is finally revealed . . . From the children's book author of the acclaimed Herman and Rosie comes Gus Gordon's Somewhere Else.

Praise for Somewhere Else

"This charming tale, with a decidedly international feel, is funny, warmhearted, and a joy to read."—Booklist, starred review
