About this product
- DescriptionAn enlightening book for children about the Israeli-Palestine conflict. A donkey witnesses the sadness, suffering and fear of the children in the occupied Gaza strip and helps them the only way he can. He turns into the zebra with the help of a zoo keeper, his best friend and some paint, so that the children can taste freedom by travelling in their imagination to far off places. Based on true events and filled with wry and playful illustrations, this gentle picture book shows the world as full of wonder and pathos even in the darkest places.
