A New Room for William

‘A beautifully moving picture book that deals delicately with a marriage break-up and moving house.’ Lovereading4kids
I wrote this story to show how it might feel to have to move house, particularly when it’s not the only major upheaval in a young child’s life. William isn’t happy when he sees his new bedroom, but when he is encouraged to choose his own wallpaper, helps to decorate and then makes a new friend, things begin to look brighter. Carol Thompson’s illustrations depict beautifully William’s feelings at this time of change.
