Somewhere Else by Gus Gordon
George is a duck. He has no interest in exploring the world. He's far too busy at home baking fine pastries. Or so he tells everyone when they invite him along on their wonderful adventures. But when his friend Pascal digs a little deeper, the real reason George won't leave home is finally revealed....

Story Mama Quick Review:

This is an exquisite story about a bird who is pretending he is too busy to go on adventures. But he has one big problem that needs to be solved and his friend the Bear Pascale sets out to help. We love how they eventually solve the problem and get to see the world. We also love how much the two friends enjoy returning to the comforts of home. This book is full of interesting artwork including photographs, maps, vintage advertisements, drawings, and collage. We love it for ages 3-8
