Product description

The classic story of living under the Taliban – now adapted into a dazzling graphic novel. Eye-opening in so many ways. A world where 50% of the population is trapped indoors, banned from leaving the house, might sound like the stuff of dystopian fiction. But in Afghanistan, that’s daily life. Since the Taliban took over, eleven-year-old Parvana has been stuck in her family’s one-room home. Like all females, she’s banned from going to school, playing in the streets and shopping at the market. So when the Taliban hauls away her father, Parvana realises she has a BIG problem. There’s no one else to support her family. It’s starve or survive. But to become the family’s breadwinner, she’ll have to take the ultimate risk: disguising herself as a boy…

  • A brilliant graphic adaptation of Deborah Ellis’s classic novel
  • Beautiful colour pictures taken from the 2017 animated film
  • Set in Afghanistan during the early years of the Taliban regime
  • An incredible story of repression, courage and the will to survive
