When relief workers bring used clothing
to the refugee camp, everyone scrambles to grab whatever they
can. Ten-year-old Lina is thrilled when she finds a sandal
that fits her foot perfectly, until she sees that another girl
has the matching shoe. But soon Lina and Feroza meet, each
wearing one coveted sandal. Together they solve the problem
of having four feet and two sandals.
Illustrated by Doug Chayka with warm colors and sensitive brush
strokes this book portrays the strength, courage and hope of refugees
around the world. The illustrations are evocative of life
in the desert.
