Panda and Penguin love their old sofa – but when the springs poke through and the cover tears – they realise it is time to go shopping! They look at all sorts of sofas – too big, too small, too hard, too soft and even too `arty’! And, of course, they end up with their `perfect’ sofa.

Lubna’s best friend is a pebble. She found it on the beach when they arrived in the night, then she fell asleep in Daddy’s salty arms. Lubna tells Pebble everything. About home. About the war. Pebble always listens to her stories and smiles when she feels afraid. But one day, when a little boy arrives, alone in a world of tents, Lubna poignantly understands that he needs Pebble even more than she does.
“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.” KIRKUS
