"The illustrations are detailed and make it fun for children to explore animal life underground. The rhyming text is perfect for read-alouds and a map showing the locations of each animal's habitat is given at the back of the book. Readers will have fun finally finding Beaver's home in North America. Recommended." ― School Library Connection

Beaver leaves his riverside home to seek adventure. When he gets lost, Akita helps him find his way home again, but what does Beaver's home look like? Does he live in a nest, hanging in a tree? Or in a hiding place at the bottom of the sea? Beaver and Akita set off in a hot-air balloon to travel the world and find their way home.

The illustrator and architect Magnus Weightman takes you on a tour around the world visiting all kinds of fascinating animal houses. For children ages 4 and up, and for everyone who loves to explore and who loves animals.

About the Author

Perhaps it was inevitable that Magnus Weightman (Sunderland, 1974) would one day illustrate his own children's book. Drawing has been a passion since his childhood and it was also the reason he chose to become an architect and urban designer. Becoming a father inspired him to bring his love for drawing, architecture, nature and travel together in his first book. Welcome Home, Beaver is both a journey of discovery of amazing animal houses and an epic search for home. From his English/Norwegian roots Magnus has now made his family home in Rotterdam.
