Reviews:
Although this is written for children of primary school age, it is a wonderful book that everyone should read. It is narrated by a school child who tries to befriend a new boy in the class. As the story progresses it turns out that Ahmet is a Syrian refugee who became separated from his parents during the struggle to reach a safe place. The author deftly covers issues of bigotry, bullying and misconceptions, but counters this with characters that have wonderful empathy and different perspectives. Despite being a serious subject, reading the book took me through a whole range of emotions and provoked both tears and laughter.
