To the end of the world, far, far away - it's where Louis and his mother go to express their love. When his mother gets cross, Louis decides to run away: "I'm going to the end of the world far, far away." Playfully, dramatically, his mother describes how sad she would be to see him go. And we realize, "going away" is a game they both love to play.

This fantastical story articulates the depth and breadth of a mother's love, and is filled with Victoria Turnbull's rich, whimsical scenes full of wonder; scenes that will take children to the very ends of their imaginations.
