A remarkable book which speaks to children’s hearts about diffi cult matters such as fear of those who come from other parts of the world and people who are diff erent from ourselves, but which comes to an optimistic conclusion: that however unlike we may be from one another, we can find a way to live in peace together. The illustrations make the book even more appealing to children, as does the text, which captures their attention by having key points printed in colour.
