Well, hello..and welcome to this Planet.We call it Earth. Our world can be a bewildering place, especially if you’ve only just got here. Your head will be filled with questions, so let’s explore what makes our planet and how we live on it. From land and sky, to people and time, these notes can be your guide and start you on your journey. And you’ll figure lots of things out for yourself. Just remember to leave notes for everyone else… Some things about our planet are pretty complicated, but things can be simple, too: you’ve just got to be kind.

Here We Are is the utterly heartfelt and very beautiful new book from award-winning children’s author Oliver Jeffers.  His previous books, including Lost and Found and The Day The Crayons Quit have delighted, amused and inspired children for years, and  we are so excited that he is coming to Ely to talk to us.
