The History of a Word 02/07/20
Publisher: Macmillan Children's books
Sunny lives on an arid plain with his extensive and loving meerkat family; they work together, play together and together do their best to stay away from jackals!
But Sunny is starting to feel claustrophobic and decides to set off to stay with his mongoose cousins and explore the outside world. He journeys through rain and shine and light and dark, reporting back to his family via a series of postcards. Sunny ultimately realises that the place he loves best is his very own home in the desert.
This is the third book from Kate Greenaway medal winner Emily Gravett. Distinctive illustrations and lift-the-flap postcards make it a joy to share with children, who will also enjoy spotting the shadowy jackal lurking in the background of each picture.
