My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An extremely beautiful tale told through the eyes of a family who need to uproot from their home and travel a long distance to find safety.
The book as a whole is a stunning thing to behold – the paper quality and binding alone had me all of a flutter! As for the plot – it encompasses the story of the countless refugees who fight everyday to cross lands and borders to hopefully reach a place that is promised to be safe. The family in this book look up into the sky and see a flock of migrating birds that do not face the barriers that they do, it’s a beautiful yet saddening little story. I urge everyone to pick up this picture book – the illustrations are one of a kind, truly breath-taking! I’m very picky when it comes to art-styles that I enjoy and this just ticked all the boxes!
