Picture book of the month: Home by Carson Ellis!

Carson Ellis' glorious Home publishes in paperback this month and takes us on a tour of lots of different homes and all the different people who might live inside them. 

Home might be a house in the country, an apartment in the city, or even a shoe. 
So many possibilities ... all called home!

In honour of such a inspirational celebration of homes, we have collected together four of the coolest homes on the planet.

This slide-house Japan is the stuff of every pre-schoolers dreams. 
Fitted with a top to bottom slide you scoot downwards, winding through the house 
and hitting a pit stop in each room.

This stone house in Portugal is just the most perfect thing.

Japan has cornered the market in weird and wonderful homes. This one is see-through!

This sea-shell house in Mexico is fit for a mermaid!
