The House by the Lake: The Story of a Home and a Hundred Years of History

By Thomas Harding

Illustrated by Britta Teckentrup

A beautiful picture book adaptation of Thomas Harding's Costa-shortlisted biography, exquisitely illustrated by Britta Teckentrup.

Thomas Harding first shared this remarkable story in his Costa-shortlisted biography The House by the Lake – now he has rendered it into a deeply moving picture book for young readers. On the outskirts of Berlin, a wooden cottage stands on the shore of a lake. Over the course of a century, this little house played host to a loving Jewish family, a renowned Nazi composer, wartime refugees and a Stasi informant; in that time, a world war came and went, and the Berlin Wall was built a stone's throw from the cottage's back door. With words that read like a haunting fairy tale, and magnificent illustrations by Britta Teckentrup, this is the astonishing true story of the house by the lake.
