A captivating and lyrical own-voices picture book exploring homecoming, belonging and identity, with exquisite illustrations capturing the essence of a journey of self-acceptance.

Dorothy wears Doc Martens. Clicking her toes together once, twice, three times, she whispers, ‘Where is my home?’

A modern comparison to Dorothy’s journey of finding home in The Wizard of Oz.

About the Author: Jordan Collins (Author)
