The Day War Came

by Nicola Davies
illustrated by Rebecca Cobb

Ref: 16310

"War took everything, war took everyone". A child's perspective on war: its sudden devastation; the loss of all she knows; the way it stalks her in her new 'home' as adults shut their doors on her and turn away...until, finally, a small child brings her a chair and a place. A devastating and brilliant picture book provoked by the UK government's refusal in 2016 to give sanctuary to 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees, inspiring a wave of quiet, powerful activism by some of our most loved children's authors and illustrators. 'Very moving in both text and images. Very necessary' (June, Parent, LL reviewer). Endorsed by Amnesty International.
