This is a heartbreaking letter imagined by its author, and inspired by the tragic image of the body of the young refugee on a beach in Greece, evoking so many others lost in the waves. It is presented like a children's book, yet the contents is too sad really for that... Certainly it is thought-provoking. The book is beautifully presented with lovely watercolours by Dan Williams, and when you buy new, the publisher gives a pound to the United Nations Refugee Agency.
I really love it, and it would be tempting to keep it, but I think this book is one that should travel.
I'm pretty sure that I found this in my local charity shop on Albion Street, before we we were all locked down...

Journal Entry 5

I found the book at the Stockholm train station, took it for a journey through Old Town and at a café had a great reading experience invoking lots of compassion, and then I took it back and left it where I found it. I added two bookmarks to it that I got from a jaunty fellow who bouncing around on black cowboy boots played a mysterious willow flute.
