Format: Paperback
The illustrations in this book are fantastic, every picture tells a story. It is a book about serious issues and has a twist at the end. I have used this book in guided reading with older children (Y4/5) who do not read well. There is lots to discuss and to stimulate writing. A must for every classroom. There is a good Read and Respond book that goes with this book too!

I bought Way Home to use in the classroom, and it is a fantastic, well thought out picture book. The discussions and questions that arise from reading a book like this with a class are fascinating. We looked at symbolism in the pictures (it uses reoccurring symbols) and interpreting the messages that were hidden there. This book would work so well in an integrated unit that I can't praise it enough. It is a fabulous book and well worth a primary teacher's time. I would recommend it for (NZ) Yr 5-8 or 9-13 yr olds. A great sophisticated picture book.

Lovely story with a twist in the tail and beautiful illustrations. A must for children and their parents to help understand how some children live.

I bought this book to teach a literacy unit at school (ages 8-9) The work the children produced based on the book was really good. The pictures are especially effective.

A Must Own 12 Dec 1999
By Peter D. Duckett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a masterpiece of the picture book format. The text is artfully written in that it provides numerous twists and turns for the reader creating narrow passageways which parallel the journey of the main character. The artwork is equally masterful. I love the idea that the end papers appear as crumpled paper and each of the images appears to be a torn photograph. These images are suggestive of the "throw-away" nature of the child involved in the story. Only at the end when the boy arrives home (a box) with his recently found cat does the single closing photo appear whole and without tears. There are other subtle meanings also woven into the illustrations. Look carefully but most importantly enjoy. This picture book provoked three days of discussion from a group of 5th grade students with whom I worked. They couldn't let the book go and they kept finding things to discuss in it. I pairs well with Monkey Island by Paula Fox and the Lady in a Box (author?.Also I Can Hear the Sun by Patricia Polacco.
