Illustrated by the winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2017, Lane Smith. Deep in the woods is a house just a house that once was but now isn't a home. Two children come across an abandoned house deep in the woods and imagine who could have lived there.

A House That Once Was is a beautifully illustrated exploration of time, imagination and the nature of home that is sure to provoke discussion.
