Book Details

Book Overview

Fleeing only leads to avoidance... Only confronting the situation offers solutions. The parents in this story give their son the freedom to choose between them, but they do not give him the freedom to choose the form of their relationship. It explores whether the responsibility for supporting family bonds falls on the children as well as on the parents, whether in the context of marriage or outside it.

About Publisher

The Etisalat Award for Arabic Children's Literature is one of the most important children's literature prizes in the Arab world and one of the richest in the world. It was launched in 2009 on the initiative of Her Highness Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al-Qasimi, President of the United Arab Emirates Board on Books for Young People and Founder / CEO of Kalimat publishing house.

The restructuring of the Award will serve to attract an even larger segment of the publishing industry and thereby encourage more publishers, authors and illustrators to play a role in developing the Arabic children's book sector.
