Synopsis

Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2017

Did you ever want to waddle with a colony of penguins? Wriggle with an army of caterpillars? Or march with a troop of monkeys?

Legendary illustrator Lane Smith takes us on a colourful adventure through the natural world, following a child as he weaves through the jungle, dives under the ocean and soars into the sky. Along the way he makes friends and causes mischief with a dazzling array of creatures both large and small - but can he find a tribe of his own? Full of warmth and humour, There Is a Tribe of Kids is a sumptuously detailed portrayal of wild childhood to be pored over for hours on end.

A witty and playful exploration of curiosity, discovery and what it means to belong, ideal for sharing with children of all ages. With a beautiful jacket glinting with gold foil, this gorgeous book makes the perfect gift for any occasion.

A beautiful book
Irish Independent
Witty and humorous, never irreverent, this is a celebration of sharing and belonging, as a multiracial family hugs their adventurer on the closing page . . . Absolutely radiant.
Kirkus

This engaging and attractive exploration of collective nouns weaves a lovely story about a boy who
wants to belong. It follows his journey through a truly beautiful series of illustrations, reminiscent of
Where the Wild Things Are.
