Thomas Harding, the author of the Costa shortlisted novel, The House on the Lake, talked to Nikki Gamble about his children’s picturebook with the same title. Through the process of uncovering the history of his family’s lake house from the Second Wolrd War to the present day, Thomas also throws the spotlight onto German history. It’s a remarkable story, made accessible to younger readers through this new version, stunningly illustrated by Britta Teckentrup.
