Explore stunning new realms of Australian imagination in Campbell Whyte's HOME TIME II!
November 26, 2019
Home Time: Under the River ended with a disastrous tea ceremony which left six kids lost, scared, confused, and even burnt. Now, the second half of the Home Time saga picks up from that nerve-wracking cliffhanger, as the children leave the relative safety of Peach Village in search of medicine, answers, and hopefully, a way home.
Equipped with a living map, a flask of hallucinogenic tea, and a plan so stupid it just might work, Lily, Amanda, Ben and Nathan will have to pull together at the very time they’ve drifted the furthest apart.
Award-winning graphic novelist Campbell Whyte is back, with his signature kaleidoscope of art styles, to cast a new spell wrapping up the most whimsically fantastical journey in ages.
PRAISE FOR HOME TIME:
“Beautifully realised, funny, smart, weird and surprisingly epic in scope, Home Time is also just plain brilliant.” — Shaun Tan
“Campbell Whyte’s debut graphic novel is cute, funny, scary, exciting, and cleverly constructed. The drawings are always a pleasure, each new art style blending seamlessly into the whole. I’m looking forward to the thrilling conclusion!” — Bryan Lee O’Malley
"Exuberant... It’s a richly imagined world, and Whyte immerses readers in it." — The New York Times
"[A] remarkably assured debut graphic novel... Illustrated in a variety of styles to capture the distinct voice of each protagonist, Home Time delves deep." — Comic Book Resources
"A highly original graphic novel adventure... it goes from curious to interesting to compelling to engrossing — the momentum keeps building to the point where we're on pins and needles." — Under the Radar
"[A] thoroughly entertaining and inherently compelling coming-of-age graphic novel... very highly recommended." — Midwest Book Review
"Whyte’s world-building is as impressive as his ambitious story and his mastery of the half-dozen styles he wears... Built on a foundation of kids’ fantasy classics, but with the specifics of its world unique and the psychological drama wild and unpredictable as the pre-teen mind, Home Time feels both comfortably familiar and refreshingly new and unusual at the same time." — School Library Journal's Good Comics for Kids
"With Home Time, Campbell Whyte has created an intoxicating and visually stunning Australian Narnia." — The Conversation
