Against a blackest-ink background, a group of anthropomorphic creatures, carrying just the clothes on their backs and a few pots and pans, make a perilous journey through forest and across seas, stalked constantly by the robed figure of Death and their familiar, a giant blue Ibis. A wordless picture book which movingly depicts the plight of desperate migrants. 'This is a powerful book of strength, loss, compassion and ultimately hope...wow! I loved this book!' (Sonia, Primary Headteacher, Letterbox Library reviewer). 'Wow! This is tough but stunning. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. You could start so many conversations [with this]- climate change, animal extinction as well as migration' (Patrice, children's/YA author, Letterbox Library reviewer).
