HONOUR BOOK: CBCA Book of the Year, Older Readers, 2019. Winner of the QLD Literary Award, Older Readers. Nominated for the 2020 Carnegie Medal.

Lenny, small and sharp, has a younger brother Davey who won't stop growing - and at seven is as tall as a man. Raised by their mother, they have food and a roof over their heads, but not much else.

The bright spot every week is the arrival of the latest issue of the Burrell's Build-It-at-Home Encyclopedia. Through the encyclopedia, Lenny and Davey experience the wonders of the world - beetles, birds, quasars, quartz - and dream about a life of freedom and adventure. But as Davey's health deteriorates, Lenny realises that some wonders can't be named.

A big-hearted novel about loving and letting go by an award-winning author.

'Karen Foxlee, you're a genius.' - WENDY ORR

'exceptional … precisely observed, engrossing and tender' - Children's Book of the Week, Sunday Times

'Themes of family and forgiveness are front and center, but the heart of this story--and the magic of it--is the devotion of these two siblings who together navigate the harsh realities of life and loss' - Publishers' Weekly

'With exquisite detail and heartrending, evocative prose, Foxlee crafts a story that reads like a classic.' Booklist (starred)
