On the Way Home

by Jill Murphy

On the Way Home Synopsis

Well, said Claire, there was a very big, bad wolf . . . Claire has hurt her knee so she sets off home to tell her mum all about it. On the way she meets her friends and tells them how the fall happened. But just how did it happen . . .? Was she dropped by a wolf, a slithering snake, an enormous dragon or a hairy gorilla?! By Jill Murphy, the author and illustrator of the bestselling Peace at Last and Whatever Next!, On the Way Home is a fantastic journey of the imagination that every child can relate to.

The Good Book Guide Review

Claire had a bad knee. On the way home to tell Mum she meets all sorts of people and tells them all sorts of tall stories - it is only to Mum that she tells the real, and very simple, truth. Claire's elaborate fantasies will appeal to all children who like to add spice to life.
