There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class…’ So begins Onjali Q Raúf’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and Blue Peter Book Award-winning first novel “The Boy at the Back of the Class”.
Portraying the refugee crisis through the eyes of a child in a way that is accessible, warm and funny, “The Boy At The Back of The Class” is full of heart, humour and hope. It’s a story about friendship and how children naturally celebrate, rather than fear, all our differences. Onjali will also introduce her latest book ‘The Star Outside My Window’ a tale of faith, bravery and resilience.
