What drives so many to leave everything behind and journey alone to a mysterious country, a place without family or friends, where everything is nameless and the future is unknown. This silent graphic novel is the story of every migrant, every refugee, every displaced person, and a tribute to all those who have made the journey.
Roald Dahl Branching Out Pack
13th September marks Roald Dahl Day where the nation will celebrate his well-loved titles such as Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Fantastic Mr Fox. Readers of Dahl's stories can expect imaginative plots, humorous commentary, and devious villains who get their comeuppance at the hands of clever children. BooksForTopics recommend the below titles for those children (and adults!) who are looking for dark humour, laugh-out-loud moments, and plucky young adventurers in brilliant recent books by authors like Nadia Shireen and Tom Fletcher.
Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things (including performing monkeys, his pet cat and the occasional cactus) and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer, as well as potions which keep him young and beautiful. But the beast grows ever greedier, and soon only a nice, juicy child will do. So when Ebenezer encounters orphan Bethany, it seems like (everlasting) life will go on as normal. But Bethany is not your average orphan . . .
