Ivanhoe Swift Left Home at Six

A lyrical exploration of those bittersweet moments when children first begin to explore the world for themselves.

Ivanhoe Swift left home when he was six.
He had heard many songs about the world, and it was time to see it for himself.
‘We won’t know where you are!’ cried his father.
‘I’ll know where you are,’ said Ivanhoe. ‘And you can look out for my kite in the sky. Goodbye, parents!’A delightful story about setting off to see the world… and the joy in coming home again.
