Book Description

Dedicated to the largely unsung, mostly unseen workers for young people in need, this evocative picture book by Libby Hathorn will stir hearts everywhere. With stunning illustrations by Gregory Rogers, this is the story of Shane and a cat with no name as they wander the streets at night on their way home. In 1995, Gregory won the Kate Greenaway Medal for his illustrations in "Way Home". He is the first, and to date the only, Australian illustrator ever to have won this prestigious British award.
