Product description

Imagine if, on an ordinary day, war came. Imagine it turned your town to rubble. Imagine going on a long and difficult journey – all alone. Imagine finding no welcome at the end of it. Then imagine a child who gives you something small but very, very precious… This powerful and necessary picture book follows the journey of a child forced to become a refugee, when war destroys everything she has ever known.

  • A poignant picture book by bestselling author Nicola Davies
  • Inspired by a poem she wrote about the plight of child refugees
  • The poem started a campaign and eventually became this book
  • A simple way to explain the refugee crisis to young children
  • Full of vivid descriptions, beautiful artwork and heartfelt emotion
  • Nicola’s books include The Promise, Poo and Big Blue Whale

“Thought-provoking and poignant, it’s an excellent answer to the question of how to talk to children about war.” Guardian

“An incredibly powerful picture book … Cobb’s illustrations are both beautiful and devastating.” The Bookseller
