(U.S. Version of ‘Belonging’)

(A wordless picture book and companion book to ‘Window’)

An alienating city street gradually becomes a place to call home. Little by little, baby Tracy grows. She and her neighbours begin to rescue their street. Together, children and adults plant grass and trees and bushes in the empty spaces. They paint murals over old graffiti. They stop the cars. Everything begins to blossom.

‘In this work, I celebrate the power of individuals and their community to reclaim their neighbourhood streets as part of their home territory. The streets gradually become places for safe children’s play, and community activity and places for nature and wonder.’
