By Hollis Kurman
Illustrated by Stephane-Yves Barroux

Unusual, highly original – a 1 to 10 counting book celebrating cultural diversity, and centred on themes of migration, refuge and inclusivity.

What if a place got so scary that we had to run away? Hold my hand and count to ten – Together we'll make it better again!
