Following on from the success of The Happiest Refugee, a memoir for adults, Anh and his wife Suzanne have created a very important and timely book on the plight of refugees with illustrations by Bruce Whatley. Anh tells the real life story of why his family had to flee from Vietnam, of being robbed by pirates and saved by the kind hearted Germans. His life in Australia is difficult but his parents are forever positive and he grows in confidence to become class captain. It’s a story about the power of hope and resilience.
Great for ages 7 – 12
