Reviews

This is a wonderful story.


A vital, emotional and impactive book that will be read, re-read and celebrated as one of the most important children's books of all time.


A small miracle of compassionate storytelling.


A tour de force ... full of warmth and love.

A small miracle of compassionate storytelling.

Sarah Garland tenderly creates a story of hope from the troubled experience of immigration in this warm-hearted picture book.

It is unusual to come across a picture book that one feels so strongly about that one wants everyone - whatever their age - to read it... Garland treats her subject with unpatronising, well-informed sensitivity.

a very powerful story

An attractively produced book that succeeds in explaining some of the difficulties faced by an immigrant child adjusting to the culture of a host country.

'Her sensitive handling of it masks the weight and significance of the subject which Garland is introducing to her young readers.'

AS SEEN IN COMMENT ARTICLE BY NICKY PARKER, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

"We endorse picture books for young children, such as Azzi in Between, which is about a refugee child... We need to move beyond the status quo."

The book presents the reader with a window into the life of a refugee family - or, perhaps more importantly, it may present the reader with a mirror, that reflects back a character who they can relate to on a personal level.

This is a wonderful story.

A vital, emotional and impactive book that will be read, re-read and celebrated as one of the most important children's books of all time.
