Ships in the Field
The author is a Hungarian refugee, and the illustrator is an Italian migrant. Together they are inspired to convey a very young girl’s naïve point of view as she reflects on her parents’ experiences who grew up in the ‘old country’ before it was ‘broken’. Few details are given but she reveals a strong empathy for her parents. This is a simple picture book story giving opportunities for discussion about adjusting to a new country and a new life.
