Alvaro F. Villa

When a bad storm and subsequent flood destroy a family’s home, they and their neighbours carefully rebuild it together until it’s as good as new again.

Spread from Flood, showing a cosy interior scene with Dad fixing storm protection panels over the windows

The house in this book is almost as much of a character as the individual family members, so the scene where the flood water washes through it is profoundly disturbing.

Spread from Flood, showing the flood sweeping over the land and engulfing the house

The message of this book is that, although disasters do happen, with courage and teamwork you can rebuild your life afterwards.
