Winner of the 2015 Children's Book Council Award for Picture Books.
Cartwheel has arrived in a new country, and feels the loss of all she's ever known.
She creates a safe place for herself under an ‘old' blanket made out of memories and thoughts of home.
As time goes on, Cartwheel begins to weave a ‘new' blanket, one of friendship and a renewed sense of belonging. It is different from the old blanket, but it is eventually just as warm and familiar.
