Tijs has moved from living near the sea to a house on the edge of a forest. Your world became a different
place when you have to leave everything and everyone behind. Tijs gets homesick and wants to returns to his old home. Along the way he meets a unicorn, which does not exist and belongs nowhere. But Tijs recognizes him immediately and together they go in search of the Tijs' old house.
The story of Tijs will be familiar to many children who move to other places. The feeling of belonging nowhere, making new friends, getting use to your new place all this are the classic ingredients and can make you feel "homesick". For sure not many children will run away in search of their old familiar place where they used to live. But seeking friendship and accepting your new place will certainly be discussed.
Tijs and the unicorn is a very colorful picture book, original and almost childlike drawn.
