Brand new hardcover book with beautiful colour pictures. 48 pages, published 2008

 Mum is a rehab counselor for people with alcohol problems. Grandma Raynor lives next door. Dad is a driver for Elgas. Then there’s me, fifteen, into a lot of different stuff. Music, surfing, animals, tennis, swimming, computer games. And my sister, Claire, and brother Toby. We’re a typical Australian family. Barbeques, footy, gardening, school, Holden Commodores. Then one day things change.

April 26, Dad burns the toast, yells at Toby, thanks me for cleaning the cab of the truck, kisses Mum and Toby, then he’s gone.
April 27, the war starts.
Everyone wants a place of safety, a place to share with the people they love. A place to relax. A home. Right now, more than a billion people don’t have a home – that’s one in seven of the world’s population.
What would happen if a typical Australian family found themselves refugees?

His first book, So Much to Tell You, was published in 1987 and because of its enormous popularity is also available now in a play version. The gripping war series which began with Tomorrow, When the War Began has broken all sales records for young adult fiction, and Burning for Revenge won the Bookdata ABA Book of the Year in 1996. John’s move into picture books has been highly acclaimed, following the release of Prayer for the 21st Century in 1997 and The Rabbits, illustrated by Shaun Tan, which was named CBCA Picture Book of the Year in 1999.
