Description

The main character in this illustrated book is a cheeky and plucky little house that doesn't have a place to live. So he packs his bag and he and Little Bear set off into the big wide world to find themselves their 'forever home.' Along the way they encounter lots of interesting characters, some nice, some sad, some not so nice, and some very rude characters indeed!
However, the Little House is no quitter, he never gives up. And just when we think that he and Little Bear will remain forever homeless, something surprising turns up. The story of the Little House is told in clever, engaging and amusing rhyme. The illustrations are beautifully detailed and well observed, and include caricatures of high-rise flats, country mansions, floaty boats, and a very busy, whizzy caravan. If you love a good adventure, if you love funny pictures, if you delight in clever storytelling, you will love The Little House that Didn't Have a Home. And if you love a happy ending, the fun starts here!

The author

Neil Sullivan has over 25 years experience in the advertising industry as a copywriter and art director, creating hundreds of funny TV ads. Neil has always had a keen interest in writing and drawing funny kids' books and cartoons. He uses his insightful advertising communication skills to connect with parents and children alike. All his Ollie And Nina And stories are based on insightful truths with a teeny bit of artistic license thrown in for added humorous effect. Neil likes to observe the silly doggie things Ollie and Nina do, and uses that as inspiration to create his hilarious cartoon strips.

A graduate of Leeds Polytechnic in the mid 1980s, where he studied Graphic Design and Illustration, Steven Burke has gone on to to forge a career within the graphic design industry as a Senior Designer Visualiser with one of the leading design consultancies in his native northeast of England, and he works on a variety of projects for national and international household names. Steven has the ability to work in a variety of styles, both conventional and digital, but still feels he is searching for the style that would suit him best. Often inspired by both the traditional and new, he feels that we are never too old to learn new methods and techniques of working. Steven met Neil Sullivan when they were both at art college in Durham, and they have collaborated on two children's books: The Little House that Didn’t Have a Home, and My Grandad Can Draw Anything - but He Can’t Draw Hands!
