ABOUT THE BOOK

Born: September 2017. Published in July 2018 by Hachette Orion.

In a nutshell: There are no nuts or shells. Mainly because we didn’t want anyone with an allergy to not read the book.

OK, a synopsis then: A new, pale boy walks into a UK classroom one day. When the narrator finds out he is in fact a refugee boy who has escaped a Real-Life War, they want to help him find his family. Which is where the Queen comes in…(Or does she…?)

Listen to it: On Audible – a sample is available HERE.

Free teaching resources: Can be found right HERE.

The author: You can find out more about Onjali Q. Raúf HERE.
