Daniel Hahn is a writer, editor and translator with about seventy books to his name. Recent translations include Juan Pablo Villalobos's I Don't Expect Anyone to Believe Me and (in a co-translation) the memoir of football manager Arsène Wenger. His work has won him the International Dublin Literary Award and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and been shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize, among many others. He is a past chair of the UK writers' union The Society of Authors, and the Translators Association.


"Le Guen has managed to take a complex plot and difficult message and combine them into an easy-to-follow story from an outsider's point of view. The words are clear, and the plot flows well. Hahn's translation is excellent. Nicolet's illustrations reinforce the child's perspective, showing the emotions and difficulty behind Iliana's family's journey to a new home. Le Guen, Nicolet, and Hahn tell a powerful tale about refuge and refugees, helping readers make sense of a complex crisis. A great story to help children understand a refugee's perspective." --School Library Journal
