Editorial Reviews

An outstanding book." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers"Lewin's watercolor illustrations capture contemporary Beirut with stunning clarity and drama . . . Unforgettable." School Library Journal, Starred"A child caught up in the terror of wartime: that's the subject of this compelling picture book. . . . This may be Lewin's best work yet. Against both the shadows and the brilliantly colored patterns, the portraits of Sami and his family are lit with beauty." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review "
