About the Book

A charming, classic picture book that imagines all the different types of places you could live—from the author of Lovely Beasts, Kate Gardner, and award-winning illustrator Christopher Silas Neal. The perfect next read for fans of Carson Ellis's Home.

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to live . . .

in a treehouse,


in a castle,

or even in a spaceship? 

If You Live Here is a whimsical tribute to the unique and special places we call home.

Critical Praise

“Whimsical and imaginative, this sweet story is a welcome addition to many collections.” — School Library Journal

“Although frequently whimsical, this book gently encourages young readers to develop curiosity about domestic experiences outside of idealized and conventional representations…. Subtly philosophical, quietly adventurous, and perfect for bedtime.” — Kirkus Reviews

“[With an] emphasis on seeking out new experiences, whether discovering strange visitors from the portal of a submarine or flying from a nest on the back of a bird[,]… Young ones will have fun finding the cat and the books on every page as they explore the world presented in the colorful mixed-media illustrations.” — Booklist
