Saoussan tells the true story of her family’s flight from war-ridden Lebanon. She wrote a letter to Robert Munsch, and together they made her letter into this book.


I enjoyed the honest depiction and truth found in Saoussan Askar’s culture shock and coping with the change that took place for her. It’s a good conversation starter for introducing other points of view to elementary age children.
