Azzi and her parents are in danger. They have to leave their home and escape to another country on a frightening journey by car and boat. In the new country they must learn to speak a new language, find a new home and Azzi must start a new school. With a kind helper at the school, Azzi begins to learn English and understand that she is not the only one who has had to flee her home. She makes a new friend, and with courage and resourcefulness, begins to adapt to her new life. But Grandma has been left behind and Azzi misses her more than anything. Will Azzi ever see her grandma again? Drawing on her own experience of working among refugee families, renowned author and illustrator Sarah Garland tells, with tenderness and humour, an exciting adventure story to be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

    I,ve got this book for my 7years old grandson, we red it together. He love the story and the illustrations as the book has beautiful drawings on every page. THe book had sparked great conversation and my grandson said he would like that little girl from the story to be in his class so she can be help by his teacher to learn english.I truly belive this book should be in every primary school library, it will help children to understand other children problems in very gentle,tender way.

    A fantastic book to show children the journey some refugees take. Helps them to understand how difficult it is for them and how they could make them feel welcome in school.

    This is a beautiful and touching story about a little girl who has had her life turned upside-down because of war in her country. Little Azzi and her family have to flee and find refuge overseas. Azzi's elderly grandmother stays behind which causes the family much distress. The story gives insight into the worries that refugees and all immigrants face. Azzi worries about her grandmother, she can't communicate at school, her father can't get work.... Please don't be put off, ultimately this is an encouraging and optimistic tale . What I found so lovely about this book is the warmth shown to Azzi's family by the new people they encounter and the fact that children adapt to new situations and find happiness where they can. I really feel that this book would encourage children to be friendly and welcoming to any new and "different" children that they meet. Surely a must for every school library.

    This is beautifully illustrated and tells the story of the impact of immigration on a family in a way that is very easy for children to understand. It helps to explain and prompts discussion about all the related issues. Highly recommended.

    Azzi in between tells the story of our times. Migration is such an important topic around the world. The book takes a sensitive approach, making the subject approachable for parents and children alike.

    I read this to my two small daughters (2.5 & 4yrs) & they immediately asked for it again. The leaving of Grandma was clearly a hook for little ones. The story itself, from an adult perspective, is harrowingly beautiful, and actually made me weep when... Well, I won't spoil it for you, but be reassured that nothing unbearably awful happens - aside from the loss of one's home, country, friends, safety net. No-one significant dies, anyway. And it all works out well enough, considering the back story.

    This story has enchanted 5 yr old twins and their 3 yr old sister and had their 46 yr old father in tears as he read it. (again and again by popular request)It has the perfect balance of truth about war and the satisfactory outcome for Azzi's family with the importance of the link to a lost garden which is so near to the superb Author's heart.
