About the Story

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, Somewhere Else, is an irresistible story about friendship, the comforts of home and learning to overcome your fears.

Both George and Pascal are utterly charming, as is the portrayal of their gorgeous friendship and underlying message about encouraging bravery, risk-taking, honesty and kindness.

Exquisitely detailed illustrations, combined with a sophisticated story, make Somewhere Else a sensory feast. 

Read delightfully by Gus Gordon himself, this story is simply divine.
