Homer Henry Hudson, a collector, a traveller, an explorer, a historian, a curator, a canine! He sniffs out adventure around the world, finding items to add to his Curio Museum. As he ponders his life and his unusual collection he grabs his coat and hat for one last venture.
The story is told through the items exhibited in the museum. The vocabulary is rich and varied, great for older children. The figurative illustrations are naturalistic and seem almost monochrome in style. They are heaving with intricate and fascinating details.
A beautiful book.
