MEDIA REVIEWS
Beautiful and powerful * The Guardian *
[A] heart-stopping, visually sophisticated story * The New York Times *
This incredibly poignant story introduces the concept of refugees with straightforward language, tackling this difficult subject with truth, clarity and strikingly beautiful illustrations. * BookTrust *
A haunting and beautiful picture book reflecting on the plight of refugees. * SLA *
The simple text allows space for discussion with children of all ages, while the story is carried by the stunning, ominous illustrations, moving from light, to dark, to light again. * INIS *
This book will stay with you long after the last page is turned -- Jenny Murray * Children's Books Ireland *
It is Francesca Sanna's clever simplicity of text which adds poignancy to the awful complexity and reality of migration. * Carousel Magazine *
The text and illustrations provide lots of talking points to discuss with your little ones. * @nestingwiththebyrds on Instagram *
An extraordinarily emotive book that really helps young children understand the emotional and physical journey of refugees. * pictureperfectkidsbooks on Instagram *
A book filled with empathy, kindness, strength and power. -- Tangletales on Instagram
An important book for young children to understand war and displacement and to read for empathy -- @picturebookconsultant on Instagram
Even though it is especially timely now. It's a book that will grab you and never let you forget... * Dulemba blog *
The art is beautiful, bold and powerful, but still whimsical. The words are carefully chosen, and always feel just right. * Babiafi *
This truly is a story of our time and one that deserves a place on the shelves of every family, every educational establishment, every library, every place where people come together to talk and to share stories. * Red Reading hub *
One my favourite books not just of the year but of all time. * Headless Greg *
This book is vital. It gives a human face to forced migration and will help children understand the world we live in. Crucially, in a time of divisiveness, it encourages empathy. * Get Kids into Books *
It's a great way to encourage conversations about having to pack and leave everything behind, the uncertainty of becoming a refugee and starting again. * The Reader Teacher *
I can see this book being absolutely fantastic in the classroom, there is so much learning and discussion that will come out of it. * @diverse kids books on Instagram *
