Product Details

Praise

★ “In their #OwnVoices debut, Mian and Mafaridik create a relatable and hilarious story . . . Exploding with personality and imagination, Omar is an easy character to love.” –Booklist, starred review

“A very kid-friendly and appealingly honest story about being different, being labeled ‘other.'” —The New York Times Book Review

“Wildly imaginative Omar’s free-association narrative, laced with expressive hand lettering and Mafaridik’s playfully exaggerated line art, remains chipper and uplifting.” –Publishers Weekly

“Mian seamlessly weaves Islamic values and teachings through Omar’s chatty narration . . . Readers will be excited to see where Omar’s imagination will take him next.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The playful text is bolstered with illustrations throughout that show off [Omar’s] creativity and imagination. A great #OwnVoices story for children to learn more about connection and empathy.”School Library Journal

“Elementary school readers will find both a funny, relatable new companion and a primer on Muslim family life with the start of this series. . .  Mafaridik’s cartoony artwork and illustrative lettering visualize Omar’s imagination.” — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
