Our immigrant world through books

‘Gloriously illustrated with the delicate watercolours of Anna Pignataro’s brush, this beautifully written story has a lightness of touch but is a deeply moving honouring of family and difficult times past. …. There are so many layers to find in this story and its illustrations, so much to ponder and enjoy, as we look at one family’s escape from everything they have known to give their child a better life.’ Reviewed for ABC Radio
