About the Author:

Renee Haggo primarily illustrates with pen and ink, watercolors, and acrylics. She has a keen eye for realism and is an avid sketcher and life drawer. Maurice Shadbolt CBE (1932-2004) is one of New Zealand’s best-known fiction writers and the author of twelve novels, four collections of stories, and a number of works of non-fiction. He has won many literary awards throughout his prestigious career. Shadbolt was awarded a CBE in 1989 for services to literature, and several of his titles are now considered New Zealand classics. 

Review:

“The Mountain Who Wanter to Live in a House is a little bit sad, perhaps, but it’s a great wee story with a nice rhythm and beautiful illustrations by Renee Haggo. It would make a great, snuggly bedtime story.” —Maurice Shadbolt, The Southland Times

"This is the story of a mountain who decided that, after watching people in town in their warm homes with families who loved them, he wanted to live in a house as well." —Beth H. Green, School Library Connection
