The Plight of the Refugee - MinervaReads
The Day War Came by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Rebecca CobbThis is a powerful book that works because it touches the ordinary in each of us. Cobb is an illustrator in the ilk of Judith Kerr and Shirley Hughes - she draws her characters and situations with a crayon childlike warmth, summoning a familiar feeling of domesticity with her children’s faces expressing the wonder and hope so redolent of innocent childhood.
