Product description

Cosy houses, nice cars, video games, consumer goods. The modern world is a pretty nice place for many of us. But what about the people left struggling outside our comfy ‘normal’? Who are they? How do they get by? One author in particular has done a whole lot to show you. Elizabeth Laird is a sensitive, subtle writer with a real flair for telling stories about people on the margins. Like these. How can Ethiopian urchin Solomon fulfil his Olympic running ambitions? How will Ayesha and Karim survive in the war zones of Beirut and Palestine? And back in England, will Anna’s severely disabled little brother, Ben, ever find a way to belong?

  • Heartwarming modern classics by a highly acclaimed author
  • Topical tales of children facing poverty, disability and war
  • Elizabeth Laird has worked extensively with refugee children
  • She has been nominated for the Carnegie Medal six times
