Little ones will love this happy story about finding the perfect place to call home.

About the Author

KEVIN TSENG (which rhymes with "sun") grew up in a town where there were thousands of oak trees, but only a few apple trees. When not telling stories about worms, Kevin designs stationery and other miscellany. This is his first picture book for children.

Praise For Ned's New Home

The cartoon illustrations are filled with warm colors and comic touches. Endpapers depict the life cycle of the apple from seed to fruit and back to seed. This reassuring tale will be appreciated by the read-aloud crowd while also supplying a subtle lesson in ecology.—School Library Journal

Tseng’s debut picture book is full of tongue-in-cheek humor. His watercolors have just the right touch of whimsy—full of humor and expression yet at the same time simple enough for the youngest listeners. Ned is a worm that is sure to be welcomed into children’s homes, no matter what kind of material they might be made of.—Kirkus Reviews
