This book would be great to read to a class that has children who have recently moved to England due to war in their home country. They have to leave their home and escape to another country on a frightening journey by car and boat. With only her teddy bear and a blanket they flee, across a dark sea with many others in a small boat.

I thought the layout of the book in a 'comic book' manner was a unique element which really complimented the book. Azzi In Between first came to my attention following it winning the inaugural Little Rebels Children’s Book Award .It is important to understand that this is similar to events which are happening in the world right now. I would honestly recommend this book to all teachers, adults and children over a certain age/maturity. It was still a very good book for kids to read to gain an understanding of what other children are going through. It offers many discussion points in PSHE; drama and writing opportunities in Literacy; and learning about plants in Science.

But most of the story is focussing on her life in a new country, where everything is different but all she wants is for her family to be happy and together. This would be perfect for a class that has a new starter in their class, or just to help a child's own moral compass. This is a beautifully told, beautifully drawn story of a young girl who becomes a refugee and flees her home country with her parents. It's in how she bridges that gap and starts to weave the two together, that's where the vibrant heart of this book kicks in.

So she works hard and plants surprise beans for her father, all the while wishing that her grandmother was there. It tells the story of Azzi, a refugee who fled from her own country which was experiencing war to come and live in England. I also love how through the illustrations danger, fear and sadness is symbolised through dark colours. Similarly to other refugee stories that I have read, Garland highlights the underlying sense of unfamiliarity within a country speaking a different language.
