Margriet Ruurs and Falah Raheem share the narration of this fictional story of a Syrian refugee family's journey to safety. Ruurs narrates her moving audiobook in accented English, followed by Raheem's narration of it in Arabic. Both use tone and a steady pace to highlight the pain of leaving home, the weary despair of the long road, and the hope found in new friendships and safety. The story will be best appreciated when paired with the picture book, which features Nizar Ali Badr's creative stone pictures as illustrations. The audiobook begins with an author's note that describes Ruurs's inspiration for writing the story: her first encounter of a moving illustration by Badr.
