A ten-year-old Lebanese boy balances his life in a war-torn city.
A ten-year-old Lebanese boy goes to school, helps his mother with chores, plays with his friends, and lives with his family in a basement shelter when bombings occur and fighting begins on his street.
In this ``poignant and appealing'' story, a boy longs for peace in his war-torn Beirut; PW noted that Lewin's art ``exudes a brave optimism.'' Ages 5-9. (Sept.)
