A lonely king and queen hear a voice calling out to them. They look inside their home, in the garden and beyond, searching in vain, while all the time it grows louder. . . Author and illustrator Deepa Balsavar says, "This is the story we made up for our little girl. As a baby it was her night-time favourite, accompanied by much acting and searching around the house. She grew up knowing that adoption is just another way in which families are created. And so it should be." Written like a bedtime story and illustrated with gentle humour, this book leads the reader to discover what 'family' really means without mystifying the fact of adoption. More, it reaffirms the right of every child to be loved and to have a home.
