About the Author:

The award-winning author Ana Eulate has enjoyed writing and telling stories since she was a child. After earning her university degree, Ana collaborated with an art magazine, worked at the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Madrid, was appointed Commercial Attaché to the Spanish Embassy in Rio de Janeiro, and also worked at the General Directorate for External Relations of the European Commission in Brussels.

After several years studying and working as a designer in her hometown Munich and Brussels, Sonja Wimmer decided to devote herself to illustration and traveled to Barcelona to continue her artistic training at the Llotja School of Design Art. Since then, she lives between brushes and stories, working as an illustrator and freelance for publishers and other customers worldwide. She has received many awards for her work in the United states, most notably Gold Medal for Best Illustrator for The Word Collector.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-An Afghan girl dreams of peace. She imagines herself and her fellow countrymen flying like kites in the sky, a metaphor that is repeated ad nauseum throughout the book. There is no plot, just this redundant wishing for a different world. No background as to what has prompted this longing is provided. It is difficult to imagine a child of any age being able to make sense of such statements as, "We are all given a new opportunity to leave our footprints for all eternity" or "please forgive me if my eyes fill with tears" when there is no context. At times the text is awkward and ungrammatical. The illustrations, which appear to be done in pastel, are well composed but cannot salvage the text. Jeanette Winter's Nasreen's Secret School (S & S, 2009) and Dedie King's I See the Sun in Afghanistan (Satya House, 2011) are better choices for introducing children to the situation in Afghanistan.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
