Product Details


Davies’s powerful words are sensitively represented by Cobb in simple child-centered illustrations, making this an accessible book for those young readers ready to engage with this difficult topic.
—The New York Times Book Review

This gracefully written poem conveys the extensive amount of suffering that war brings…An absolutely beautiful story that penetrates the heart and seeds hope when there is little of it.
—Booklist (starred review)

Sketchy, child-friendly illustrations and poetic prose do not shy away from the realities of war but also inject a note of hope in this powerful picture book…A sensitive and finely tuned message about the cost of war and its impact on children without resorting to graphic violence and pessimism.
—School Library Journal

This first-person poem’s words are moving…this is a strong statement on the impact of refugee crises upon children.

Gentle, childlike drawings by Cobb (There’s an Owl in My Town) help soften the blows in this story by Davies (King of the Sky), published in association with Help Refugees, about a girl in a country at war.
—Publishers Weekly
