It was exhausting but it showed their reality. The journey that immigrants travel to find hope, to find their new life.
Months ago, Ebo’s sister left for a better life and now, his brother has left without him. Hoping to catch up with him, little Ebo leaves and finds that this journey is long and exhausting. With no money and no papers, he must first cross the Sahara Desert and then find passage across the Mediterranean Sea. Each of these stretches is dangerous and carries its own risks as Ebo comes to understand.
This was an excellent graphic novel to present this information to young readers. Easy to follow frames with detailed illustrations bring Ebo’s story to life. Presented with “now” and “then” stories that alternate in this graphic novel, we “now” begin Ebo’s story as he makes his journey across the Mediterranean Sea and “then” the story begins when Ebo realizes that his older brother has left him. This is a graphic novel that readers will be talking about.
