Mohammed was born in 1994 in Kirkuk ? the Kurdish part of Iraq. In October 2000, Saddam Hussein's soldiers came to his house, beat him and his mother, and took his father away. Mohammed never saw his father again. This book tells the story of Mohammed and his mother, from the escape from Iraq by bus, on horseback, in a boat, and on a lorry, through Iran and Turkey, to England and safety. Photographs and illustrations depict these events as Mohammed and his mother talk about their harrowing past and their hopes for the future.

The true story of an Iraqi-Kurdish refugee child, and his flight from his home in Kirkuk to the UK.
