Praise

“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

“Meddour’s short, simple sentences pack an emotional punch. . . . This tender, understated story honors the emotional resilience of young people.”—Horn Book

“A truly important story about the refugee crisis and the power of friendship. Highly recommended.”—School Library Journal
