Editorial Reviews

Review

"This moving and timely debut novel tells an enlightening, empowering, and ultimately hopeful story about how compassion and a willingness to speak out can change the world.” —School Library Journal, Starred Review 

"Political and cultural undertones are undeniably present in Rauf’s timely debut, but it’s the themes of kindness, empathy, and tenacity that resonate strongest. Rauf excels at tapping into the thoughts and concerns of contemporary children, providing wholly believable characters who use their voices to help others and create change, as well as offering a safe space for readers to explore and better understand the refugee crisis." —Publishers Weekly


"Tearjerking and chuckle-inducing . . . . Above all it celebrates the power of kindness." -- The Sunday Post (Scotland)

"Inspiring and sweet . . . this is a beautiful, open-hearted debut from Onjali Q Raúf that should help children be the best they can be and realise the power of kindness."--Booktrust (UK)

"Us[ing] humour to tackle a challenging and timely subject . . . [this is] an engaging exploration of the refugee crisis through the eyes of a child."--Readings (AU)

"Raúf's touching debut could hardly be more topical . . . utterly delightful." --Mail on Sunday

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully written book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 25, 2018
I saw some reviews on Facebook and decided to order the book. It comes days before expected, on Sunday.
It's an amazing story of a friendship beyond all barriers that grown ups try to build between kids. Sad at times, but mostly funny, happy ending, beautiful story.
I read it to my 4 and 6 years old before bed , and they loved it, and can't wait for chapter 2 tomorrow. The book is very easy to read, so older child could do it alone easy. The story is nice, fun and interesting. Would recommend.

Update. Just finished chapter 8. The more you read , the more you love the book. My 12 years old and husband actually join in to listen to the story, they love it so much 2
