Flight by Nadia Wheatley and Armin Greder
Tonight is the night. The family has to flee. They’ve been tipped off that the authorities are after their blood.
Set in biblical times, a small family sets off across a desert in search of refuge from persecution in their own country and an ancient story becomes a fable for our times. Their journey is beset by heat and thirst, threatening tanks and the loss of their donkey, but eventually they reach a refugee camp where they can wait in safety for asylum in another country. This is a story that reflects the experience of many people today who have become refugees. Although it is a picture book, this is not a book for young children.
