Henry, with his caterpillar eyebrows and spidery legs, lost his smile aged six playing football with his dog, Tatty. He found it again 15 years later helping to prepare 10,000 bowls of soup each day for the hungry and displaced who found themselves far from home, washed up on the beaches of Greece.
This picture book is aimed at children aged five to eight and encourages them to engage with their parents on the vitally important migrant issue that is beginning to define the times in which we live.
All profits will go to Médecins Sans Frontières, an international charity who are amongst the most respected participants within this complex and troubling arena. Ten Thousand Bowls of soup is a story of hope and adversity which shows how ordinary young people have made a real difference to the lives of those far less fortunate than themselves.
