Somewhere Else

Author/Illustrator: Gus Gordon

George has no interest in exploring the world. He’s far too busy at home baking fine pastries. Or so he tells everyone when they invite him along on their wonderful adventures. But when his friend Pascal digs a little deeper, the real reason George won’t leave home is finally revealed… From award-winning author and illustrator Gus Gordon comes this irresistible story about a duck called George, the possibility of adventure, and taking risks to realise what you value most.
