A heart-wrenching true story about life in a Kenyan refugee camp that will restore your faith in real-life happy endings.

Omar and his brother Hassan, two Somali boys, have spent a long time in the Dadaab refugee camp. Separated from their mother, they are looked after by a friendly stranger.

Life in the camp isn't always easy. The hunger is constant...but there's football to look forward to, and now there's a chance Omar will get to go to school.

With a heart-wrenching fairytale ending, this incredible true story is brought to life by Victoria's stunning illustrations.
