Description


Beautifully illustrated and undeniably moving, this is the story of a little Afghan girl's dreams of peace. As her country is wracked by war, a girl's imagination drifts toward the idea of peace for her people and for her country. Her powerful dreams soon take wing and fill the homes and hearts of those around her, uniting a people in their common desire for peace.

Praise For…


"Powerful images of dancing kites, ascending doves, women in burqas, a child playing with toys made from trash and flowers sprouting from tanks juxtapose the real and the aspirational. Ardent advocacy for Afghan peace." —Kirkus Reviews (September 2012)

"Ana A. de Eulate's prose is poignantly lyrical. Her sophisticated style is warm and welcoming, as are Sonja Winter's illustrations. Her eye-catching lines and stylized depictions are masterfully rendered. Her use of light — stunning." —www.CrackingTheCover.com
