Old Tom's Holiday

Author(s): Leigh Hobbs

Children's Picture Books

When Angela Throgmorton wins a luxury holiday trip, she's thrilled. The poor woman needs to get away. She's exhausted from caring for Old Tom, who likes to relax, and never helps around the house. It's a trip for one - maybe Old Tom can clean his room while she's gone. On her whirlwind trip, Angela travels on airplanes, trains, and buses. She visits museums and gardens and exlusive cafes. But everywhere Angela goes, she sees something that reminds her of home. Is she just homesick, or is it a holiday for two after all? Leigh Hobbs is the author and illustrator of the immensely popular Old Tom series and, more recently, of the various hilarious international adventures of his Mr Chicken character. Leigh Hobbs is the Australian Children's Laureate 2016 - 2018.
