A Place for PaulineIngram
As the eldest child in a large family, Pauline struggles to find her niche, and she longs for peace and quiet. Pauline lives with her mother, father, little brother and sister, and there’s a new baby on the way. Her friends tell her she’s lucky to be the eldest ― she’s the one who gets new clothes and can stay up late ― but Pauline isn’t so sure. In her busy, crowded, noisy house, she never knows what she’s supposed to do.
So Pauline finds a secret hideaway, and in this quiet place, surrounded by her precious belongings, she can read her favorite books, make up stories and imagine being as free as a bird.
Funny and touching, this story highlights the importance of finding our place, while gently exploring feelings about solitude, freedom, independence and the comforts of home ― a charming story in graphic-novel style.
