A Woman’s Huts and Hideaways


$28.41


In ‘A Woman’s Huts and Hideaways’, each place has its own story, a reason for being, whether it?s somewhere to escape, to create, to work or just a place to ‘be’. A bespoke shed in an Urban garden, surrounded by pots of plants and flowers, serves as an isle of peace for its owner, Wendy. By the Waterside, Mary has built a beach hut on the coast, perched on stilts with a view out to the sea. Hidden away, in an enchanting wilderness in Norfolk, UK, is Janet and Sue?s Secret Garden. Here, there are three sheds: an old summerhouse full of light; a hide nestled in the bushes for watching the local wildlife; and a renovated wagon used as a base for recording their wildlife observations. In Portland, Oregon, Polly uses her inland boathouse as a Creative space for writing. From yurts to Airstreams, beach huts to bothies, the huts and hideaways have one thing in common? they are all inspirational spaces created by women, for women. Beautifully illustrated with photography by Nicolette Hallett, ‘A Woman’s Huts and Hideaways’ takes the ‘sheds for women’ movement one step further, into all sorts of outdoor buildings and spaces.

When Sam the library mouse and his friend Sarah wake to find the library being packed up to prepare for a major renovation, they realize they won’t have a home during the construction. So off they go in search of a new place to live. Sam knows research is key, so he finds books about architectural styles to get ideas for building a temporary home from objects found around the library. They build and live in a variety of houses: a castle, an igloo, a yurt, a modern house, and even a geodesic dome. But none feels like home to Sam. Finally, though, the renovation of the library is complete, and they can move back to their true home, the library! The book includes photos of the real house styles discussed in the text and a relevant glossary of architectural terms. Praise for Library Mouse: Home Sweet Home”Kirk?s familiar gouache illustrations maintain a mouse perspective filled with library details. This clever presentation of world housing types has three pages of backmatter that describes each style and its location. Not only is the story amusing, but the information will be useful in classrooms.”-Kirkus Reviews”Newcomers and fans of the previous titles will welcome this tale, and librarians will put it to good use in their research lessons.”-School Library Journal”This is a fine use of light fantasy to teach a little lesson about building structures, and it will be especially useful to those preparing children for the disruptions that come with home renovations.”-Booklist
