Reviews

"A timely story of displacement, loss, friendship and kindness--universal messages with timeless appeal."--Booklist, starred review

"The larger-than-life, almost dreamy illustrations show readers what Lubna sees and feels, and the rawness of both text and images penetrates the heart. . . . A true celebration of the endless creativity and resilience of children."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Spacious, soaring spreads by Egnéus add flashes of imaginative escape to the poignant story by Meddour. . . . The story addresses a difficult subject but stays focused on hope."--Publishers Weekly
