Synopsis

One day, a weaver ant family's world is turned upside down when their home is destroyed. With only a few belongings on their backs, they set off in search of a new one, meeting many creatures on the way. Some are kind, some are not so kind. Some of the places are warm, some are cold. Sometimes the creatures they meet are friendly, sometimes they are not. But none of the places feel quite right. Will the weavers ever find somewhere they can call home again? This beautiful picture book explores the importance of home and welcoming new people into communities.
