My Two Blankets (HB)

Author(s): Irena Kobald

Picture Books

Cartwheel has arrived in a new country, and feels the loss of all she's ever known. She creates a safe place for herself under an 'old blanket' made out of memories and thoughts of home. As time goes on, Cartwheel begins to weave a new blanket, one of friendship and a renewed sense of belonging. It is different from the old blanket, but it is eventually just as warm and familiar. This beautiful tale about friendship and culture, paired with award-winning Freya Blackwood's stunning illustrations makes for the most exquisite book.
