This is not one for the faint of heart. It is a very moving picture book which has been nominated (as all books have in this section) for its illustrations.
It is very topical and very emotional. It has a message of hope but it is also very sad. I would not read this to a very young person, I would aim it more for a school aged child, because of the issues that it discusses.
It is very tenderly told and the illustrations are surely noteworthy.
