Postcards Home is the tale of Sunny, a young boy who leaves home to go on an adventure (after deciding he needs a break from his family). Through postcard format Sunny tells the story of his experiences on leaving home and the fears he has along the way. It is a coming of age story, where Sunny realizes that home is not so bad after all. This is an engaging work, targeting the experiences, fears and joys of leaving the nest and venturing into the real world. This story is directly related to the fears and excitement young children have in starting school and new experiences as they start to interact more in the wider world.
