Description

"Dear Reading Buddy,

My teacher suggested that I write to you.

I will tell you about myself.

My name is Saoussan. I am seven years old and I am in grade two now.

I come from far away."

Saoussan tells the true story of her family’s flight from war-ridden Lebanon. She wrote a letter to Robert Munsch, and together they made her letter into this book.
