About the Story

Eva squeezed Suri's hand. 'What's there? What can you see?'

'What can I see?' Suri looked out over the wall. 'Oh, it's beautiful, let me tell you all about it.'

Suri's Wall by author Lucy Estela is one of the most moving, powerful and important stories of recent times. As much about personal themes of growing up, friendships, coping with being different and loneliness, the story also encompasses more universal themes of displacement by war and the power of the human spirit.

Matt Ottley's beautiful illustrations, in particular his powerful use of colour and the body language of his characters, enhances the mood of the story and gives an amazing visual depth.

Sensitively read by storyteller and Sunrise Cambodia founder, Geraldine Cox, this is a story that must be shared far and wide.
