About this deal

The winner of 2013's Little Rebels prize for radical children's book, this graphic novel tells the story of Azzi and her family who leave their war-torn country, and manage a difficult and dangerous journey to safety. It was still a very good book for kids to read to gain an understanding of what other children are going through. My children loved the story, found it exciting and interesting and have a much better understanding now of the experience of refugees. Covering many genres some are great for engaging reluctant readers while others are perfect to entertain those reading above their age.

Exploration of the facets that build a sense of belonging would be so essential to discuss, helping to increase awareness that a journey to safety is not over through the mere crossing of territory, and worries do not always heal by distancing oneself from the place of danger. She has illustrated Margaret Mahy’s Dashing Dog and has written and illustrated Billy and Belle, Eddie’s Garden, Eddie’s Kitchen and the board books, Splash!Azzi arrives in a new, unfamiliar country where she must learn a new language and live among strangers.

I'd recommend this book to share with Y2 upwards, particularly in PHSE lessons, and it would be a good resource for Refugee Week.

The text is so rich and would be brilliant to use in KS2 classrooms where it could be explored and enjoyed to its full potential.
