The Can Caravan

by Richard O'Neill, illustrated by Cindy Kang - £7.99  Child's Play International (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786286147 | ISBN 10: 1786286149

When Janie's neighbour Mrs Tolen goes into hospital with a broken hip, it looks as though she will have to move out of her old caravan and into a house. Janie is desperate to help, but all seems lost until her school visits a local recycling plant.
 
All it takes from there is imagination, a supportive community, and lots and lots of hard work to transform Mrs Tolen's old caravan into a safe and secure new home!
 
The latest picture book by renowned Romani storyteller Richard O'Neill celebrates the traditional Traveller virtues of resilience, adaptability, loyalty and independence.
 
Recommended for readers aged 4+
