Book Details

The author used to live in the busy city where there were buses and trains, and people waiting for buses and trains.

Now he lives in the country and jubilantly takes us on a tour of his home, pointing out all the animals that share his space. There are stuffed bears and quilted chickens. His dog Wednesday watches cranes, frogs, and dragonflies live their lives. Coyotes and chipmunks come and go, and the world around where he lives is full of life, until winter comes, and there is nothing but snow.

Uniquely structured, All the Animals Where I Live is a picture book from Philip C. Stead, one of our most innovative author-illustrators, that is a meditation on life and moments big and small that shape our individual worlds.

In The News

"Stead’s thoughts wander, and so do his drawings. His dog’s whiskers and mild gaze are captured with scribbly charcoal lines; blades of grass behind a cricket under the full moon are brushed in unerring ink strokes. It’s a journey with an artist who sees the eternal in the everyday."—Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"young artists and nature lovers will find much here to admire and any of the artist’s many fans would be happy to peruse these pages."—School Library Journal
