The Guardian `Well-paced and closely structured, this story works on every level, with Egneus' watercolors showing a range of emotion and activity, balancing clutter with space...Peaceful and heartfelt. and The larger-than-life, almost dreamy illustrations show readers what Lubna sees and feels, and the rawness of both text and images penetrates the heart. . . . A true celebration of the endless creativity and resilience of children.'
