My daughter is 5 and she LOVED this story. It was read many times while we had it and gave a heartwarming story of love in a time of a lot of strife and fear.

I tell my girls when something bad happens 'Look for the helpers'... this is a wonderful example of how acts of kindness make a lasting impact on people and a community.

A wonderful story about what people do to keep their pets and how some lost pets find their way home against all odds.

Una historia conmovedora que narra una historia de amor, fortaleza y determinacion. Mi gran respecto para los protagonistas que hacen la vida e historias de miles sino millones de refugiados un poco mas ligeras. Y a todos los refugiados; mucha fuerza.
