Young readers will delight in the realistic and literal interpretations of where some of our most favorite animals live. Humans love to put their feet up at home after a long day–whether they’re in a house, apartment, or cabin. Well, even animals have their own particular homes. Otters kick it on a couch, lions retreat to their dens, and pigeons (the city dwellers that they are) call lofts their home. Where we live is a part of us.
<p><b>Lisa Mundorff</b> grew up in the Pacific Northwest, in a neighborhood and town that look an awful lot like those inhabited by the prairie dogs in <i>Welcome Home</i>. She feels lucky to have been raised by such a supportive community and is extra grateful for her family, who have given her a home in every sense of the word. <br><i></i><br><i>Welcome Home</i> is her picture book debut as an author-illustrator. She also created illustrations for<i> A Small Blue Whale</i>, written by Beth Ferry.</p>
